Recipe source: Greek food and  the kitchn.com

  • 1 tblspn active yeast
  • 1 tblspn sugar
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tblspn olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt

  • In ½ cup warm water dissolve sugar
    and yeast.
  • Let it stand covered for about 10
    minutes. When the yeast becomes bubbly it’s ready for use.
  • In the wide bowl mix salt in the
    bread flour mix the slat well.
  • Make a well in the center and add
    the yeast mixture.
  • Mix the dough using as much as warm
    water needed to make a smooth elastic dough.
  • Knead well. Make a smooth ball of
    the dough.
  • Apply oil to the bowl and place the
    dough in the bowl.
  • Turn the dough so that the top of
    the ball is also oiled.
  • Cover the bowl with a cling film and
    set aside in a warm corner for the dough to rise. The dough has to be double
    the size,
    approximately 1 ½   to 2 hours.
  • Punch down the dough and knead for 5
    minutes more.
  • Heat any tava/
    skillet   over medium-high heat and roll your pita bread.
  • Take pieces of dough about the size of a lemon and
    on a floured board roll out to a thickness of ¼ inch.
  • Coat the bottom of
    the hot pan with a little butter or olive oil and add your pita.
  • Cook the pita for
    about 30 seconds or till you get small bubbles and then flip it over.
  • Cook for a minute
    and a half, flip it again, and cook for another minute.
  • Transfer the pita
    to the direct flame and cook.
  •  During this time, the pita will puff up like a
    pita and get some nice toasted spots on the underside.
  • Flip over again on
    the direct flame again you get lovely spots. You are done.
  •  Wrap the pita breads
    in a clean dishcloth while your make the others.
