Envelope Bread
(Pita)
The ubiquitous bread of Greece has hundreds of uses.

What You Need:
  • 1 package (1 tablespoon) active dry yeast
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a mixing bowl, combine yeast with 1½ cups of flour. Combine water, oil, salt, and sugar and add to yeast mixture.

    2. Beat for ½ minute with an electric mixer at low speed; then beat for 3 minutes at high speed.

    3. Work in remaining flour by hand to form smooth and elastic dough. Put in a greased bowl in a warm spot, cover, and let rise for 45 minutes.

    4. Punch dough down, divide into 12 pieces, and roll each into a ball. Let rest for 10 minutes.

    5. Flatten each ball into a 5-inch circle. Place on a greased baking sheet; cover and let rest for 20 to 30 minutes.

    6. Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake for 9 or 10 minutes, until puffed and lightly browned on bottom. Immediately wrap in foil and cool.

    To Make: 12 pieces
