This is my first post in this forum so, I am sorry if there's a recipe like that already. I thought this one was amazing, so I wanted to share it:
Pita Bread Recipe
INGREDIENTS: 2 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 1 cup pastry flour 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F) 1 teaspoon active dry yeast 1 tablespoon applesauce 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar olive oil PREPARATION: Dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water.
Combine the all-purpose flour, pastry flour and salt in a bowl. Stir in the yeast mixture and the applesauce and knead. If too sticky add 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour until you get the right consistency.
If too dry, add 1 tablespoons of water at a time until you get the right consistency.
Roll out into a rope and cut into 8 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and roll out until it's anywhere from a 6 to 8 inch circle.
There are two ways to cook pita bread. The flavor is a bit different with both.
Baked Pita: Preheat oven to 500° and put a pita on a wire cake rack. Toss in the rack and cook for 3 minutes or until the bread stops puffing up. When you take it out, smash down the pita (Careful, its hot!) and quickly put it in a plastic freezer bag.
Fried Pita: Heat olive oil in a skillet over high heat. When almost smoking, place a pita in the pan and cook for a few minutes on each side, till brown spots begin to appear. It should look be flat and look something like a tortilla when you're done. Put in a plastic bag once it has cooled a bit. Shared by Sandy H.
