Pita Bread

Really simple pita bread recipe, for baking in an oven or on the grill. Slightly sweet and great freshly made.

Makes about 8.

Prep time of ~120 minutes; cook time of ~4 minutes each.


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp yeast
  • 1 1/4 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


Mix flour, yeast, salt, sugar in mixing bowl.

Add olive oil and water, combining into a loose dough.

Knead by hand for ~10 minutes, or until smooth.

Place dough ball in oiled bowl, covered with a damp towel. Let rise for 60-90 minutes until doubled, depending on your temperature conditions.

Punch down dough and divide into 8 pieces. Let rest for 20 minutes.

Roll out each ball to ~1/8” thick. If it doesn’t strech well, let rest a bit.

Bake at 400 F for ~3 minutes total, flipping after ~2 minutes. On the grill, may take much less time. You’re looking for it to completely puff up before flipping.


Can add some garlic powder, but may require additional rising time.
