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.
