Pita Bread

Every country has their share of authentic breads. Pita bread is from the Mediterranean region and it tastes awesome when baked fresh with hummus.. You could enjoy it with hummus, insert it with falafel, tzazki sauce and salad and that makes a meal. Make these breads and are so perfect as a snack with hummus.. For this month’s We Knead to Bake, Aparna gave us the choice to bake any bread and this is my choice. This is also a perfect snack choice for the “after school snack” for this month’s BM




All Purpose Flour - 1 1/2 cups
Whole Wheat Flour - 1 1/2 cups
Salt - 1 1/2 tea spoons
Sugar - 2 tea spoons
Warm Water - 1 1/2 cups
Instant Yeast - 2 1/4 tea spoons
Olive Oil - 1 table spoon





Mix together sugar, yeast and 1 cup warm water and set aside for 10 minutes
By now it will be frothy and foamy. Add flours, salt and mix it well
Now knead it for around 10 minutes until forms a sticky dough but able to handle it
Keep it in a warm moist place to proof for around 2 hours or until it doubles in volume.
Punch and knead it again for 5 minutes
Grease a tray and set aside
Make 16 balls (about 50 grams each) and smooth it and place it on the greased tray. Leave some space in between as it will increase in size
Keep it covered for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees C
Roll each ball into a 5 inch disc and place it in on a baking tray or a cookie sheet
Bake it in preheated oven for 3 - 4 minutes on each side until it is golden and puffed up
Remove to a cooling rack
Enjoy warm!!
