Under the High Chair: DIY: Pita Bread
This post was originally published on May 4, 2007 On these beautiful spring days, it's tough deciding how to spend the mornings: head outside and weed among the daffodils or throw on an apron and get floury in the kitchen? Here's a quick bread recipe that lets you do both--Pita! With a relatively rapid rising time (30 minutes) you can have the satisfaction of having your hands in both dough and dirt in the same morning.Just be sure to use that nail brush in between! Pita bread is something my family has been making for as long as I can remember. Here's my favorite hummus recipe, in case you need an accompaniment for your pitas! Wimbush Family Pita Bread 1 tablespoon yeast1 ¼ cup warm water1 teaspoon salt3- 3 ½ cups flour Dissolve yeast in water for about 5 minutes in the bowl of an electric mixer. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into six pieces for large pitas or ten for smaller. Let rest on the floured surface 30-40 minutes until slightly puffed.
