White flour, 500 g
Dry yeast, 1 heaping tablespoon
Sugar, 1/2 flat teaspoon
Salt, 3/4 flat teaspoon
Water, 1¼ cups
lukewarm (as needed)
Olive oil, 1/4 cup
for greasing the dough balls


1. Mix in the mixer bowl all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, yeast and salt), add the water gradually and knead well (check the amount of water, the dough should be comfortable to knead and not stick to hands).
2. Leave the dough to rise for about half an hour in the mixer bowl covered with plastic wrap (the bowl should be covered with the plastic wrap, not the dough), divide into about 8 balls and set aside. There is no need to rise excessively).
3. Prepare a bowl with olive oil, dip each ball in it (or simply grease the ball with your hands) and flatten using your hands to a pita at the diameter of the pan.
4. Heat a pan and fry the pitas for about a minute on each side until lightly golden (no need to grease the pan. Press a little on the pitas before frying the second side).
5. Bon appetite (:
There is another option for preparation: use a wok and turn it (a kind of hill over the fire), heat well, place the dough on top and turn (like a homemade Tabun oven).

Total time: ±1 hour

Can be stored in the freezer.
