Prepare time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 6 minutes
Stand time: 2 hours
Serves: 8 servings
1) 1 cup minus 1 tbsp water (220g), 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp salt；
2) 1 cup unsifted all-purpose flour (160g), 1 cup whole-wheat flour, 1.5 tsp fast rising yeast;
3) 1.5 tbsp olive oil (can be substituted with corn oil or butter).
1: Place all ingredients of Ingredient 1) in the bread machine. Measure in all ingredients of Ingredient 2) (Picture 1). Select “dough” and start the program. When the stirring begins, open the lid and quickly add 1.5 tbsp oil (Picture 2). Close the lid and let the program finish. The entire process takes about 1.5 hours.
2: When the dough doubles in volume (Picture 3), remove from the bread machine. On a floured surface, knead a few times then divide the dough to 8 equal portions (Picture 4).
4: Press down each dough ball and roll out into a 0.4 cm thick circle (Picture 6). Repeat the process for the rest. When the oven reaches the desired temperature, place the pita bread on the baking sheet (wear mittens as the surface is very hot,). Bake for 5-6 minutes until puff up (Picture 8).
5: Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Slice in half and choose your favorite stuffing. I use shrimp and egg stir fry this time, very delicious.
