4 cups All-Purpose Flour (1 lb)

1 tablespoon Sugar

1 teaspoon Salt

1 tablespoon Active Dry Yeast

1.5 cups Warm Water (0.36 L)

2 tablespoons Olive Oil


Activate the Yeast:

In a bowl, mix warm water and sugar. Sprinkle yeast over the mixture and let it sit for 5-10 minutes until frothy.

Prepare the Dough:

In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Add the activated yeast mixture and olive oil. Knead until a smooth, elastic dough forms.

Rise to Success:

Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.

Divide and Conquer:

Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C). Divide the dough into golf ball-sized portions and roll each into a ball.

Roll and Bake:

Roll out each ball into a flat, round disc. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes or until puffed and golden.

Serve Warm:

Enjoy your homemade pita warm, perfect for dipping or filling with your favorite ingredients.
