Directions

Dissolve yeast in 1/2c of warm water, add honey and let sit for 5 minutes. Add 1/4c olive oil, salt and the remaining 1.5c of warm water and mix well. Stir in enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 6-8 minutes on a floured surface to keep from sticking. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and place in a warm spot for 30 minutes to allow to rise. Break into smaller balls, and allow to set for 5-10 minutes. Then roll into the desired size pita. Bake at 475 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool on wire racks, and then enjoy!!

    These were very easy and delicious. However the 8 minutes was too long of a cooking time. My first batch came out crunchy, but its ok I'll just use them for pita chips ;-) I cooked my second batch for 5-6 mins and they came out perfectly soft and chewy (I was able to get 24 from this recipe). Yum! - 3/15/09

    This recipe needs to be broken down to how many servings that it actually makes. I know one pita can not possibly be 2533 calories. Also it needs to be stated approximately how many pitas this makes. But otherwise I plan on making this recipe. - 3/1/09

    Wow, I didn't see the nutrition workup. No they definitely don't have that many calories. The yield depends on how large you make them, but I get about 20 to 25 per batch. Thanks for the heads up!

  • I honestly have no idea what I did wrong, but I ended up with really delicious French bread rolls. Very yummy and easy but very much not pita. Not that this will keep any of us from gobbling them down. Yum. - 10/12/10

  • hmm good pitas, I made the dough in my bread machine then rolled out the rounds. I think next time I'll add a little more salt or something, they're soft and chewy and most of them made pockets, but they're not as flavourful as I'd like. I cooked for 6 minutes as suggested by Futuremrsmc - 4/27/09
