HOMEMADE PITA BREAD, Khubz๐Ÿ”† Making your own pita bread is such fun.ย Pita puffs up like a balloon in the oven, and like most other breads, it is best enjoyed fresh and warm with a dipping sauce or grilled veggies or meat. Pita remains puffed so can easily be turned into pockets.
My first attempt and it came out perfectโ€“ it tastes better than what we buy. I love that I can make the dough for this ahead of time and pinch off just enough for one quick pita whenever I want it. This easy recipe is inspired from by sami_tamimi .

INGREDIENTS
1 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 cup warm water
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups all-purposed flour
1/4 cup dry skimmed milk powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tbsp olive oil
.
STEPS
1. Put 1 cup lukewarm water in a large mixing bowl. Add yeast and sugar. Stir to dissolve until mixture is frothy, about 15 minutes.
2. Add salt, olive oil and nearly all of all-purpose flour, milk and knead into a dough, ~6-8 minutes; the dough should be soft and a bit moist. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap, then cover with a towel. Put bowl in a warm place. Leave until dough has doubled in size, about 1 hour.
3. Heat oven to 500 degrees F and place a heavy-duty baking sheet. Punch down dough and divide into 8 pieces of equal size. Form each piece into a little ball. Place dough balls on work surface, cover with a damp towel and leave for 10 minutes.
4. Remove 1 ball and press into a flat disc with rolling pin. Roll to a 6-inch circle. Leave again to rise under a damp towel for 20 more minutes
5. Carefully lift the dough circle and place quickly on hot baking sheet. After 2 minutes the dough should be nicely puffed. Turn over with tongs or spatula and bake 1 minute more. Transfer warm pita to a napkin-lined basket and cover so bread stays soft. Repeat with the rest of the dough balls.
