How to Make Pita Bread

HideShow Media
Sprinkle the yeast over the luke-warm water and leave in a drought-free place for 10-15 minutes. By now it should be frothy (if not, change your packet!).
Mix the yeast into the flour along with the salt and knead to a soft dough with water.
Cover with cling film or a wet cloth and leave in a drought-free place for about an hour, to rise a little bit.
Divide the dough into 6-8 pieces and roll into flat or oval rounds.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 8-10 minutes (they should puff up and get a light brown).
Better still, bake in an oven-toaster-grill (with elements on both sides).
Remove from oven and pile one on top of the other or pressed with a plate or lid.
