Pita Bread


3 C bread flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 Tb sugar
1 Tb yeast
1 1/4 C warm water
2 T olive oil


1.  Combine water, yeast and sugar in large mixing bowl.  Allow yeast to proof.
2.  Add oil, salt and 1 C of flour.  Mix until smooth.  Add remaining flour a little at a time while mixing until a ball forms.  Turn out onto floured surface and knead dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
3.  Let dough rise until doubled in a lightly oiled bowl covered with a towel.  Punch down dough removing air bubbles.
4.  Turn dough onto floured surface and divide into 8 equal parts.  Roll them into balls and allow to rest for 20 minutes before attempting to roll into pitas.
5.  Preheat your oven and baking stone to 450 degrees.  If you don’t have a baking stone, just preheat a large cookie sheet in the oven.
6.  Roll dough into 8 inch circles and allow to rise for 15  minutes, covered.  Place on your hot stone and bake for 3 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool on cooling rack.
