I love pita and those Arnold's Sandwich Thins from the store, but yet I want to get away from buying them after all they taste so much better being homemade. Yesterday was my second attempt on this recipe from Hallee. We still are not sure what is going on, I made 8, but only 3 puffed up. So I ended up with 3 pita, and 5 flat breads that I have still been using for sandwiches. They are delicious none the less!
Pita Bread-shared from Hallee the Homemaker
3 cups unbleached flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp honey
2 1/4 tsp yeast(or 1 packet)
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups room temp water
2 tbsp olive oil
Combine yeast and water. Let stand for 5 mins. Mix together flour and salt, add to yeast mixture. Add in oil, stir with wooden spoon until it forms a ball.(add more water if needed). Place on lightly floured surface and kneed for 10mins(or on speed 2 of stand mixer for 3 mins).
Place dough into a greased bowl, cover, and let rise for 60-90 mins. Punch dough down and divide into 8 pieces. Roll into balls, cover and let rise for 20 mins. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees
with either a pizza stone or upside down cookie tray inside.
Roll dough out into 1/4 inch disks. Place on hot stone/sheet. Place on stone(as many as will fit) for 3-8 mins(they puff at 3 mins and brown up to 8 mins).
**I will try this again and probably make them smaller.
