Homemade Syrian Pita Bread

Syrian Bread Pita Homemade

Pita read pocket for sandwiches

This is one of the few recipes for pita, is very simple and easy to make. I've found that, it's important to use unbleached flour for this recipes, additionally I mixed the white flour with the whole wheat flour, therefore I used two cops of white and one cup of whole wheat, you may use the same amount of flour with white only, if you're white flour fanatic!! However I've found myself had to add an extra half cup of the flour to reach the right consistency after all.


  • 2 lb chicken breast
  • 1 tbsp of yeast
  • 2 cups of lukewarm water
  • 3 +1/3 cups of flour
  • 1 Tsp of salt


Pour the lukewarm water in mixer container,  add the yeast and mix till dissolve, you may leave the mixture for 5-10 min, then add the flour plus the salt. Let kneed for 5 - 7 min, at the this stage you may add some flour if needed. Normally it's easier to add the flour then water at this step. You may finish kneeling by hand or until the dough is smooth and silky. Make it even small pieces and roll it about 1/4 in thick. Bake it at 450F oven  7- 9 min...Enjoy!!
