Ingredients for 8 Greek Pita:

• 1 kg All Purpose Flour
• 600 ml Warm Water
•1 tsp Brown Sugar
•1 tsp salt
•7g Dry Yeast
•4 tbsp Olive Oil

Step 1:
In a bowl, add 600g all-purpose flour. Using a cup, dissolve the yeast and the sugar in 300ml warm water. Add the yeast mixture over the flour.

Step 2:
In another cup, dissolve the salt in 300ml warm water and incorporate it in the flour mixture. Add 4 tbsp Olive Oil and start kneading the dough.

Step 3:
Incorporate gradually the rest of the flour until the dough has an elastic texture.

Step 4:
Let it rest in a warm place for 40 minutes until doubled in size.

Step 5:
Gently deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and start forming the Greek pitas by using a floured rolling pin. Roll them into circles of 8-9 inches wide and about a quarter inch thick. Warm a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and grease it with olive oil. Lay a rolled-out pita on the skillet and bake for 1 minute, until you see bubbles starting to form. Flip and cook for 1-2 minutes on the other side, until large toasted spots appear on the underside. Keep the cooked pitas covered with a clean dishtowel while cooking any remaining pitas.
Bon Appetit!
