Equipment

  • 1 Rolling pin
  • 1 Frying pan / grill pan

Ingredients

These Ingredients make:

6 Portions
  • 250 ml lukewarm water
  • 1/2 Packet Yeast
  • 1 TL Maple syrup
  • 1 TL Salt
  • 500 g Wheat flour Type 450 or type 630 spelt flour

Instructions
 

Prepare the dough

  1. Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water and then add the maple syrup and salt. Stir well and leave to stand for a few minutes until the yeast is activated. (small air bubbles form)
  2. Gradually stir in the flour and knead into a smooth dough.
  3. Cover the dough and leave to rise in a warm place for about 2 hours until it has doubled in volume.

Divide and roll out the dough

  1. Divide the dough into hand-sized portions and shape into round balls. Roll out each ball into a thin circle on a lightly floured surface.
  2. Fry the pita bread in a hot pan until golden brown on both sides. This usually only takes a few minutes per side as the loaves rise and form a characteristic pocket.

Enjoy

  1. Enjoy the homemade pita bread fresh from the pan.
  2. Fill them with your favorite ingredients and experience the delicious taste of freshly made pita bread!
