Homemade Pita Bread

Updated: Feb 18


Ingredients

2 Cups Flour

1/2 Tsp Salt

3 1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil (or melted butter)

3/4 Cup Flax Milk (or milk of choice)


Directions

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil and milk until well blended. 

2. Add the flour and salt to the mixture and stir together using a wooden spoon. If the mixture is too dry, you can add more milk. 

3. Once the dough is formed, remove from bowl and knead on flour dusted surface for about 1 minute.

4. Cover dough with saran wrap and let sit for 30 minutes. 

5. Divide the dough into 6 sections, roll into balls and then flatten with rolling pin until thin. Use flour to help ensure dough doesn't stick to rolling pin or counter.

6. In a medium-sized skillet, add about 1 Tbsp of olive oil and heat until warm. 

7. Add the thin, flattened pita to the pan and cook until it starts to brown, takes about 1 minute. Flip and cook in the same fashion. Once both sides are browned remove from pan.

8. Repeat steps 6-7 with the remaining pita dough.
