Total Time 1hr 30mins | Prep 15 mins | Cook 1 hr 15 mins

This doesn't taste exactly like arabian pita, but it is close. So quick and easy, and tastes better with arabian dishes (hummous, falafel, shawerma, etc). I make it when i can't get arabian pita, great with "fooll muddames" as well. This is my Mom's recipe.


Yield 18 Pitas
Units US

1 tablespoon instant yeast
1 1⁄2 cups water
1 -2 teaspoon sugar
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon nonfat dry milk powder
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons oil

  1. Mix yeast, water and sugar.
  2. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, dried milk and salt.
  4. Pour in the oil and yeast/water mixture and stir well.
  5. You might need to add more flour or water, depending on the absorbency of the flour.
  6. Knead dough briefly, divide into 18 egg sized balls.
  7. Place on a floured surface, cover and let rest for 15-30 minutes.
  8. Roll one ball out and cook in a skillet until large "bubbles" form.
  9. Flip pita over and cook the other side for a few more minutes.
  10. I flatten it out with a spatula.
  11. Keep bread warm (wrap in a towel or place in a ziploc bag) while cooking the rest of the bread.
  12. These freeze well.
