Pita Pockets

October 11, 2008 at 7:07 am (Counter Culture) (, , , )


1 cup water (warm)

1 tbsp dry yeast

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

2 1/2 cups flour


In a large bowl, completely dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Stir in salt and flour. Knead on a lightly floured board for 6 minutes, until elastic. Devide into 12 pieces. Shape each piece into a round ball and cover with a towel to prevent drying. Roll each ball inot a flat disk, about 5” in diameter and 1/4” thick. Let rise 30 mintues, covered.

Preheat oven and pans (or baking stones) to 500 degrees. Place risen pitas on preheated pans and bake for four minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Cut in half. If not rolled too thinly, pitas should make a pocket, perfect for stuffing with sandwich fillings! For pitas that don’t pocket, cut into wedges and toast for pita chips!

Serve with your favorite sandwich fillings. We like to eat them with our Tithing Chicken Salad!
