Before you begin this recipe, you’ll need to have a sourdough starter.




1. Place the flour and salt into a mixing bowl, add 1/2 Cup water and your natural yeast starter/sourdough starter. Add more water slowly to form a dough.

2. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes to make sure the flour has all dissolved. If too dry, add more water, 1 Tbs. at a time. If too wet, add more flour, 1 Tbs. at a time.

3. When dough is ready, form it into a ball and take aside 1 cup of dough to use for next time (see here for instructions). Oil a bowl with olive oil and place dough in it.

4. Cover tight with a lid 12 hours or overnight. You may wish to leave it out longer if you like it to be sour.

It is best to watch someone in action when trying to learn a new skill. Since the internet in not personal interaction, video is the next best thing. Here is a video on how to mix, roll and bake pita,  please feel free to do a search for a different  instructional video on making pita bread if you’d like. Here is one I have found and hopefully in the future, I will make my own. Just remember, the following video is NOT a traditional method, so please use the recipe above.
