1¾ cups water

Utensils

  • 1 bowl (small)
  • bowl (large)
  • stand mixer with dough hook
  • rolling pin
  • Baking tray
  • kitchen towel
  • oven
  • Step 1/6

    • 1 tbsp dry yeast
    • 1¼ tbsp honey
    • 1¾ cups water
    • 1 bowl (small)

    In a small bowl mix a cup of water with dry yeast and honey. Let it sit on the counter for 2-4 minutes.

  • Step 2/6

    • 17⅔ oz gluten-free flour
    • ½ tbsp salt
    • 3½ tbsp olive oil
    • bowl (large)
    • stand mixer with dough hook

    To a large bowl of a stand mixer add flour, the water-yeast-honey mixture, and then, the rest of the water (¾ cup). Mix until a dough starts to form and after 3-4 minutes add olive oil and salt. Keep kneading the dough for another 3-4 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

  • Step 3/6

    Cover the dough with a thin layer of olive oil using your hands, cover it with a towel and let the dough rise for about 1 hour or until it doubled its size. After the dough has risen, turn it onto a floured work surface and divide the dough into 10-11 pieces (Each piece should be around 100g)

  • Step 4/6

    • rolling pin

    In order to shape each pita bread, take 1 ball (While keeping the others covered) and press into a flat disc using a rolling pin. Roll each disc into the desired size while making sure that its thickness won’t be over than half a cm. You can sprinkle some flour at this point if you feel like the dough is getting sticky. Repeat the shaping process with the rest of the dough balls.

  • Step 5/6

    • Baking tray
    • kitchen towel

    Before baking the pita bread let them rest for about 30 minutes on the baking tray, while they are already shaped. Don’t forget to cover them with a damp towel.

  • Step 6/6

    • oven

    Preheat an oven to 240c degrees. After 30 minutes place the tray in the oven and Bake the pitas for about 5-10 minutes. After a few minutes, you should already see the pitas are nicely puffed and they start to have a golden color. Once the dough has puffed and the pita has a nice golden color, flip the pitas and bake for another 1-2 minutes. Important: The baking process happens so fast so don’t leave your oven and be present in this baking process. Once baked, remove the pita bread from the ove
