- 300 g water
- 1.5 teaspoon dried yeast, (1 sachet)
- 500 g baker's flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 teaspoon olive oil
Add water and yeast to the Thermomix bowl and heat for 2 minutes / 37° / speed 2.
Add all the other ingredients in the order that they are listed and combine on for 5 seconds / speed 4 and then KNEAD for 3 minutes / "Dough mode" . Tip dough onto a ThermoMat and knead by hand for about half a minute and then wrap in the ThermoMat and allow to rise in a warm spot for 30-60 minutes until doubled in size.
A pizza stone (or large tile) should be placed in the oven and it should be pre-heated to 230°C.
Unwrap the dough and knead gently by hand for another minute and then divide the dough into 12 even portions. Roll each portion into a ball and then flatten to a round disk (using your hand or a rolling pin) to about 15cm diameter. Cover with a damp tea-towel and allow to rest for at least 15 minutes and then place them onto the hot pizza stone and cook for 4 minutes and then flip them over and cook for a further 3 minutes.
The pita pockets will have puffed up beautifully and will now be golden, hollow pockets that you can fill with any filling you like.
I find it easier to place my dough disks onto baking paper and move them with the paper still attached straight into the oven. It will depend on how big your stone is as to how many you can cook at a time.
If you don't have access to an oven (you might be camping) you could also use a heavy based frying pan with a lid... the pita pockets will puff up just the same but they will have a spotty look about them. They will still taste amazing!
To Make the Dough
Accessories you need
Pita pockets are so very easy to make and, in my humble opinion, a MUST for anyone who hasn't been succeeding with making breads. They are so versatile and healthy and can be filled with anything you like.I team these with Shoarma meat (recipe to follow VERY soon!) and salad but you could even just add cheese and Vegemite and it'll be a yummy lunchbox filler for the kids!
Older pita breads can be cut into triangles and baked to make crispy crackers to serve with a dip! Enjoy!!
