Pita Bread

3 cup Ap flour
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Sugar or honey
2 tsp Yeast or 1 packet
1 1/2 cup Luke warm water (may not need all of it)
2 tbsp Oil (1/2 to rub on dough ball)


Gather your mise en place. You will need all ingredients above 2 mixing bowls, plastic wrap, rolling pin and clean work surface... Add flour, salt, sugar, yeast and 1/2 the oil into your mixing bowl. If you have fresh active yeast you wanna put the yeast water and sugar into a separate container for 20 mins and let it bubble up before adding to flour Start adding water and mixing till you have a ball of dough Remove from bowl and lay on clean floured surface and start kneading till you have a smooth ball. About 10 mins Not too much flour but add little by little as needed Rub oil on other mixing bowl and all over dough ball. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to double in size. About 30 mins to an hour depending on surrounding temperature Once doubled in size remove from bowl and place on clean in floured surface and, press down all over on dough with all fingers to redistribute the gas bubbles, called punching, then portion out 8 balls and you could wrap in plastic and freeze for later date or roll out on floured surface to about 1/4 to a 1/3 of an inch thick Bake in oven at 350 for about 15 mins or until it puffs up . Or grill for about 2 maybe 3 mins on each side until puffed up.
