  • Summary

    Is it worth making pita at home? Absolutely. Store-bought pita (like store-bought sandwich bread) is often several days old. Warm, fragrant home-baked pita is obviously superior, and there’s a bit of a thrill when the breads puff up in the oven. And once you get the hang of it, it’s not difficult. For the best flavor, try to get freshly milled whole-wheat flour. Even though only a little is called for in the recipe, it makes a difference. Featured in: First Time’s The Charm With Fresh Pita. 

    Ingredients

    • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
    • ½ teaspoon sugar
    • 35 grams whole-wheat flour (1/4 cup), preferably freshly milled
    • 310 grams unbleached all-purposed flour (2 1/2 cups)
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
