Method

These homemade pita bread are usually served with Greek suvlaki! They are soft, puffy and a little more bread like!

  • Combine the sugar, yeast, water and milk in a bowl. Set the bowl aside for 5 minutes, until the mixture starts to froth.
  • In another bowl, combine the flour, the salt and the chopped fresh thyme leaves and give it a mix to combine.
  • Add the oil to the yeast mixture and stir to combine.
  • Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture in batches. Make sure each batch is incorporated before adding the next.
  • Transfer mixture to a lightly floured working surface. Knead for 4-5 minutes until the dough becomes smooth.
  • Brush a bowl with some oil and add the dough.
  • Cover with a towel and let it rest for about 40 minutes, until it rises and doubles in size.
  • Place a pan over medium heat.
  • Press on the dough to remove the air and cut into 6 equal sized pieces.
  • Place pieces of dough on a lightly oiled working surface. Use a rolling pin to roll out each piece of dough to a circle 20 cm in diameter.
  • Cook the pita bread for 1-2 minutes on each side in the pan, until they puff up slightly.
  • Transfer to a plate and serve with chicken or pork gyro, sausages or vegetables. Sprinkle with chopped thyme.
