In this video, Little Chef demonstrates how to bake fresh home made pita bread in a lightning-fast 1.5 hours! You will need: 2 Cups Flour + More (All purpose white or what have you) 1 Cup very warm water (Half for yeast mixture, half for dough) 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon sugar 2 1/4 Teaspoon yeast, or one packet Olive oil Aluminum foil Cookie sheet Preheat oven to lowest setting (under 200F is fine) Mix sugar into 1/2 cup very warm water (not uncomfortable or will kill yeast). Stir in yeast and leave in a warm place fo 5 to 10 minutes. Optionally warm flour in a microwave proof dish for 30 to 45 seconds. Flour should feel warm to the touch.
  • Add salt to flour.
  • After yeast has foamed, stir it into the flour.
  • Stir in remaining 1/2 cup very marm water.
  • Continue mixing dough until it forms a ball.
  • Turn dough out onto a floured surface.
  • Knead dough and continue to sprinkle small amount of flour until dough is no longer sticky.
  • Continue kneading for 10 minutes.
  • Place dough back into the bowl, and cover dough lightly with olive oil.
  • Place bowl of dough onto a cookie sheet filled with 1/4 inch of warm water.
  • Turn off the oven and place bowl inside.
  • Let rise until doubled (about 30 to 45 minutes)
  • Turn dough back onto table. Knead for 5 minutes
  • Cut dough into about 4 pieces. For larger pita, cut larger pieces.
  • Shape dough into pitas, cover with olive oil and place on allumin foil
  • Let dough rest on top of oven.
Preheat oven to 500F When oven comes to temperature, bake pitas for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly brown. Flip over after 6 minutes if you wish, to brown both sides evenly. Brush with butter if desired, sever hot. Fantastic with tzatziki dip and chicken souvlaki!
