- 2 tsp. dry yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp. salt
Dissolve the yeast in 1 cup
warm water. Sift together the flour and salt and mix
the yeast and water. Work the mixture into a dough and
knead for several minutes. Cover the dough with a damp
cloth and let rise in a warm place for 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Divide the dough into 6 equal
portions and roll into balls. With either your hand or
a rolling pin, pat and press each ball of dough into a
5-inch circle about 1/2-inch thick. Place on an
ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or
until the pita are light golden brown.
