Thanks Laura for submitting this delicious Pita Bread recipe! It is now posted to the Simple Snacks section of the blog right under the hummus recipe. Yum!!!!!
recipe from Laura Gonda. (courtesy Kathleen Daelemans)
- 1 package active yeast
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
- 3/4 cup water (might need more)
- 1 teaspoon oil
In the bowl of a food processor combine the yeast, sugar, flour, salt and thyme. Pulse to combine. Add the water in a steady stream until the dough begins to form a ball, turn it on to a board and knead with the heel of your hand until the dough is smooth and elastic. Coat a bowl with oil. Place dough in bowl, and cover with a damp cloth. Put in a warm spot to rise until double in size, about 1 hour. When the dough has doubled in size, punch the dough, scrape it onto the counter and knead it lightly into a smooth ball. Cut into 20 pieces and with a rolling pin roll out to form very flat 5 to 6-inch circles. Preheat a stove top grill pan over medium high. Do not oil. Place bread on hot grill and cook.
