Pita Bread Recipe

Pita Bread Recipe
This pita bread recipe makes amazingly soft and fluffy pitas. If you’re in the U.S. and are used to the cardboard rounds sold at supermarkets here as “pita bread,” you’ll be amazed once you try the real thing. The yeasty, delicious aroma, the chewy texture and the delicate taste will get you hooked immediately. There’s one caveat though: once you try these, you won’t be able to go back to eating supermarket cardboard pita. The dough in this pita bread recipe is mixed by a bread machine. If you don’t have a bread machine, you can prepare the dough by hand. Makes 12 small pita bread rounds, or 4 servings Ingredients 1-1/4 cups warm milk (I use 2%) 2 tablespoons olive oil 3 cups bread flour (all-purpose should work) Up to 1/4 cup more for flouring the work surface 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon rapid rise yeast or bread machine yeast Directions 1. This is what the dough looks like when you remove it from the machine. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Repeat with remaining dough. It’s true.
