Make Your Own Arabic Bread

Today, I will share with you how to bake Arabic/Pita bread at home. It is easy and so tasty. It takes a long time to prepare but it is totally worth the wait. I am sure that I will be repeating it over and over again.


Three Cups of All Purpose Flour

One and a Half Cups of Warm Water

One Tablespoon of Self-Rising Yeast

One Teaspoon of Sugar

Dash of Salt

How to Prepare:

In a small bowl, place the yeast, sugar and half cup of warm water and mix well.

 Let it sit for 15 minutes so the yeast becomes active.

In a large bowl, mix the flour and salt and then make a hole in a middle to add the yeast and water.

After the yeast activates add it slowly to the flour then add the rest of the water also slowly until all mixes into a dough.

Using another bowl, grease it with olive oil to prevent the dough from sticking and place the dough in it.

Cover the bowl with cling wrap then wrap it with a kitchen towel,  keeping it warm for 3 hours.

Pre heat the oven to 500F/260C.

After 3 hours take the risen dough and knead for 10 minutes on a surface covered with flour.

Cut the dough into small pieces to make the bread and place on a surface with flour and let it rest for 10 minutes.

Flatten each piece and place in the oven for 6 minutes flipping them over after 3 minutes.
