- 3 cups flour
- 1 package of yeast (or 2 1/2 tsp)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 cup warm water
- 1/2 tsp Italian herbs (or just one of your favorite Italian herbs would be fine too, I'm sure.)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp sugar (nuh-uh, you say? yes sir/madam, I say!)
- olive oil
How to do it, and do it well (according to Connie):
- Pre-heat oven to 400*F.
- Add yeast to 1/4 cup of warm water, wait a few minutes to let it activate.
- Mix dry ingredients together.
- Make a well in the middle to the dry mixture (basically, dig a little hole). Add 1 additional cup of warm water. Mix together, then knead and let it rise is a warm place for about an hour. (My mom always put her dough to rise on top of the steps with a towel over it.)
- Divide the dough into smaller balls (depending on how big you would like your pita bread to be), then roll them out with a rolling pin.
- Grease a baking sheet with olive oil, and place the rolled out pita dough upon it. Put a little olive oil on top of the rolled out dough to keep it moist and D-lish.
- Bake for 10-12 mins. This really depends on how chewy/crunchy you would like your pita bread to be.
- And now the best part! Eat!!
Oh hey, look what you can do with it!
