This easy Homemade Pita Bread is perfect for an appetizer or snack any day! Pita bread is so easy to make and is great as a lunch bread or snack idea.


  • 1 ½ Cup - All purpose flour
  • ½ Cup - Whole wheat flour
  • ½ Tsp - Sugar
  • 1 Tsp - Active dry yeast
  • 1 Tbsp - Olive oil
  • Water as needed


    In a bowl, take the flour, sugar, salt, yeast and oil.
    Give it a quick mix and start to add a little bit of water at a time to form a soft dough.
    Knead the dough until the top starts to get smooth.
    Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and let it sit in a warm place for about 1-2 hours, until the dough almost doubles in size.
    Knead the dough gently once again and divide it into 5-6 equal portions.
    Shape the portions into round balls and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
    Now dust a clean work surface and a rolling pin with flour.
    Place one ball and roll the ball into approximately a 6-7 inch circle.
    Preheat the oven to 230 degrees Celsius with a cast iron pan or a pizza stone in the middle rack of the oven.
    Place 1-2 rolled pita on the skillet/pizza stone (depending on how many fits in the pan at a time) and let it bake for 2-3 minutes on one side.
    Now with a pair of tongs, flip the pita carefully to the other side and let it bake for a further 2 minutes.
    The pita should be cooked with slight browning and the pita should fluff up.
    Take the pita out and repeat the same method for baking the remaining pitas.
