Pita Bread

Submitted by: SLCTALBOT


Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    • 1 package dry yeast
    • 1 1/3 cup warm water
    • ¼ teaspoon sugar
    • 1 ½ teaspoon olive oil
    • 3-4 cups flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

Combine yeast, water, and sugar in large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Add oil, 3 cups flour, and salt, mixing until smooth. Mix in enough remaining 1-cup flour to make smooth dough.
Knead dough on floured surface until smooth and elastic about 5 minutes. Place dough in greased bowl; let stand, covered, in a warm place until double in size, about 1 hour. Punch dough down.
Shape dough into 12 balls; let stand, loosely covered, 30 minutes (dough will not double in size). Rolls balls of dough on floured surface into rounds 5 to 6 inches in diameter. Place rounds, 2 to 3 inches apart, on cookie sheets; let stand 30 minutes.
Bake breads, 1 pan at a time, at 500 degrees until breads are puffed and brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
