Recipe Tools


1. Sprinkle yeast into water and wait til foamy.

2. Add sugar or honey and salt and stir to dissolve. Beat in 1 cup flour for a smooth batter. Add rest of flour gradually for a fairly soft dough. Knead til smooth.

3. Cover with damp towel; let rise til double in size.

4. Punch down and knead a few minutes. Divide in 6 or 12 pieces. Knead each unit and roll (use flour to prevent sticking) into 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick circles.

5. Let circles rest at least 30 minutes covered with damp towel.

6. Heat oven to 500F and heat baking sheets. Brush hot sheets with oil or sprinkle with cornmeal. Place pitas onto hot sheets and bake just 5 to 8 minutes until puffed and very slightly brown. Watch closely; they bake fast.

7. Wrap pitas in damp towel and put in paper or plastic grocery bag for 15 minutes. This important step keeps them supple.
