  • To a large mixing bowl, add warm water, yeast and sugar and stir well, then let sit for 10 minutes to activate
  • Add salt, oil and 2 cups flour and mix with hands until a ball of dough forms..it will feel slightly wet so you can add a little more flour until it comes together and you can knead it a few times. (This is why recipe calls for an extra ½ cup flour for kneading and rolling)
  • Cover bowl, put in a warm place and let sit for 2 hours to proof
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Take dough ball and put on lightly floured cutting board or counter and divide in 8 smaller balls. Roll out flat with a floured rolling pin. They will be 6 inch pitas.
