White Pita by Dina

Ingredients:

1 tbsp instant yeast

3 cups of warm milk

6 cups white flour ( u might need some more )

2 tbsp of sugar

2 tsp of salt

2 tbsp of olive oil

Preparation:

Mix together the milk (37 deg cel) and the yeast, till it completely melts down.

Add to it the flour, as well as all the ingredients, mix well and leave the dough to rise for approximately an hour.

Dust work surface with some flour.

Turn the dough onto your work surface and gently degas the dough. Divide the dough into 12 pieces for big pitas or 24 for small size pitas.

Knead them into balls and leave to rest for another 20 mins and cover with a table cloth.

Remove 1 ball (keeping others covered) and press it into a flat disc with a rolling pin.

Warm a non-sticky frying pan over medium-high heat.

 Pour a few drops of oil and wipe off the excess.

Place on it the pita dough and bake for 30 seconds, until you see bubbles starting to form. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side, until large toasted spots appear underneath.

Flip again and cook another 1-2 minutes to toast the other side.

The pita should start to puff up during this time; if it doesn’t or if only small pockets form, try pressing the surface of the pita gently with a clean towel. Keep cooked pitas covered with a tablecloth while cooking any remaining pitas.

Enjoy it warm and fresh!!
