Pita Bread Recipe
Here is an easy pita bread recipe for you to try. The pita is a staple in Israel as you can fill it with hummus, tahini, falafel, salad and a million other tasty options. The pita is best when it is fresh and warm – no surprise there…
Ingredients (enough for 10 pieces of pita bread):
- 1kg (2.2 lbs) flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 spoon yeast
- 2 cups hot water – not boiling.

How to Make the Pita Bread:
- Mix the flour, yeast and salt together.
- Slowly (but surely) add the water little by little and form into a dough.
the dough sit for about 45 minutes, covered in a piece of fabric or a
pot’s cover. Leave in a warm place until the dough swells up.
- Divide the dough into 10 pieces and form a ball from each one.
- Dip each ball in flour and flatten to a circle of about 10-13 cm (4-5 inches) diameter.
in 180º Celsius (350º Fahrenheit) until you get a brownish color. If
you bake it in an electric oven make sure you turn the pitas around from
time to time so both sides will be equally brownish.
As we say in Hebrew, beteavon! (Hebrew for bon appetit)
