Easy Pita Bread in a Food Processer

Easy Pita Bread in a Food Processer

You can have plump and risen pita breads without having to rise the dough twice. Serve with your favorite fillings.

Ingredients: 4 to 5 pita breads

All purpose flour (or 50% bread flour and 50% cake flour)
200 g
Sugar
1 teaspoon
Salt
1/2 teaspoon
Olive oil
1 teaspoon
Dried Yeast
1 heaped teaspoon
Lukewarm water
120 ml

Steps

1. Put all ingredients into the food processor and blend. I usually blend for 3 minutes but this depends on your food processor. Keep your eye on it, and blend until the dough becomes smooth.
2. Transfer the dough into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise for 50 minutes (or until doubled in size).
3. Divide into 4 to 5 portions. Roll up into a dough. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes.
4. On a sheet of parchment paper, roll the dough into a flat ball. Spread it out by gently rolling it with a rolling pin etc. It should be about 12 to 14 cm diameter (and slightly thinner than your earlobes). Preheat the oven to 250℃.
5. Place the rolled out dough onto a baking tray and bake for 5 to 6 minutes at 230℃ (or until plump and risen). Take it out when done. Keep in a plastic bag to avoid drying up.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was making "eterno"'s bagels and was really impressed by the idea of using a processor to make them. I wondered if it was possible to make pita bread the same way, and after much trial and error I finally arrived at this recipe.
