Ingredients

Pita bread recipe

  • 500 g / 2 cups wheat flour 
  • 1 tsp. salt 
  • 1 tbs. olive oil 
  • Some oil to grease the bowl needed to knead the dough 
  • 2 tsp. / 10 ml dry yeast 
  • 1 tsp. garlic flakes, (optional)  
  • 1 tsp. sugar 
  • 350 ml / water (at room temperature) 
  • A little extra flour for pulling the dough pieces into shape
  • Handful of Poppy- or Sesame seeds (optional)



Directions

  • Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and knead them well for 8 to 10 minutes until you get smooth dough. Add a little flour to the mixture while you knead if it becomes to sticky.
  • Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it rise for 90 minutes.
  • The dough should have doubled in size by now. Cut it into two equal pieces and gently pull them into round or oval shaped pieces, cover them and let them rest for another 15 minutes.
  • Place the dough pieces on a greased or with baking paper covered baking tray.
  • Use your thumb or index finger to push small deep hollows into surface of the dough pieces.
  • Sprinkle poppy or sesame seeds over the dough.
  • In the meantime preheat the oven to 250 degrees Celsius / 482 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place baking tray with the raw breads into the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Or till the breads have risen and the surfaces have become golden brown. 

The freshly baked breads are amazing if used in a traditional Hebrew breakfast. In combination with olives and feta cheese they work perfectly and are a real treat for the taste buds. :-)
