Preparation

Pita Bread

Take 233 ml of warm water in a bowl and add 7 g of yeast and let it rest for a while. Then add 233 g of whole grain flour, 233 g of bread flour (higher protein content) or all purpose flour, 5 g of salt, 5 g of honey and 14 ml olive oil. Now mix and knead for around 10 minutes or until it becomes elastic and has developed enough protein.

Next line the dough with some olive oil, cover and let it rise for an hour. After that expel the excess air out and divide into portions and shape the dough to a sphere form. Let them rest again for around 13 to 21 minutes while covering. Next flatten them out but not too thin. Let them rest for another 13 to 21 minutes while covering.

Also add some finely sliced or chopped onions. And mix well.
