  • 3 cups all-purpose flour(360g) can use 1½cups all-purpose and 1½cups whole wheat
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp Instant yeast
  • tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup cool water(236g)


  • Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl with a spoon, let rest 5 minutes
  • Stir again and then put a little olive oil on your work surface. Do 3 envelope folds at 20-minute intervals, as demonstrated in the video.
  • After the 3rd envelope fold, cover and let rise for one hour, or until double in volume
  • During the last half hour of rising time, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Put oven steel in the oven prior to preheating.
  • Divide the dough into 8 pieces.
  • Roll each piece into an 8-inch circle and bake on the hot steel in the oven. The pita will puff up in the oven. Bake the pita for 3 minutes on the first side. Flip over and bake another 1½ minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and cover with a clean towel until the pita has cooled and deflated.
