|1||In the mixer bowl, or a large bowl, pour ½ teaspoon caster sugar, 9 g salt and 300 ml water (warm).
Add 500 g flour, 25 g yeast, and finally 2 tablespoons olive oil.
|2||Knead for 4 minutes on medium speed (position "1"), or manually until you get a smooth elastic dough.
Note: For the best way to knead, see: A few tips for effective kneading at home.
|3||Gather the dough into a ball, dust with flour, then cover with a plastic sheet. Leave to rise at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours, until the dough is doubled in volume.||2 hours|
|4||Cut the dough into 7 or 8 small lumps. Roll into balls, place well spaced on a baking sheet, and cover with a damp tea-towel.
Leave to rise again for about 30 minutes at room temperature.
|5||Then roll out the balls of dough into flat rounds approximately 10-15 cm (4-6") diameter and about 5 mm ( ¼") thick (they should not be any thinner).||30 min.|
|6||Cook the pitta:
|7||If you use a bread oven, take care because the pitta cook very quickly (one minute or less!), and need to be turned round and over to colour uniformly.
Your pitta bread is finished.
|8||You could throw a "pitta party", preparing everything to be put out on the table, leaving your guests to assemble their own pitta sandwiches. Choose a variety of fillings such as:
Diced tomato and cucumber with herbs and vinaigrette.
|9||Diced avocado in a lime and olive oil vinaigrette.|
|11||Guacamole, Hummus, etc.|
|12||To make a pitta sandwich, cut in half while still warm.|
|13||Then fill the pocket of each half as you choose from the suggestions above.|
