PITA BREAD

pita1PITA BREAD

So a few years ago I made unleavened bread for our church. It was so much fun,that I started making my own rolls, biscuits, crescent rolls, and pita bread. I use wheat flour, stevia and coconut oil; however, white flour, sugar and veggie or corn oil will work. I love these pitas because you can mix in some Italian spices, Mexican spices or cheese depending on the meal you are serving these with. I have often made these u[ for my boys and set out sandwich stuff, taco meat, a tub of BBQ and even pizza fixin’s and said have at it. It’s hard to please 20 males at once but that will usually do it.

Ingredients:

4 1/2 to 4 3/4 cp Wheat Flourromans-8-28
1 pkg Dry Yeast
1 1/2 tsp Stevia
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 3/4 cup Water
2 Tbls Coconut Oil

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cps flour, yeast, stevia and salt. Mix well. In a sauce pan heat water and oil until warm (120 to 130 degrees). Add to flour mixture and beat on low speed until moistened. Beat 3 minutes on medium. By hand, gradually stir in enough flour to make a firm dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Cover dough with plastic wrap, then a towel. Let rest on board for 20 min. Remove towel and wrap and punch down dough. Divide into 12 equal parts. Shape each part into a smooth ball. Cover and let rise 30 minutes, allowing enough space between each ball to rise. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. With a rolling pin, roll each ball into a 6″ circle. Place three circles at a time directly onto oven rack. Bake until puffed up and top just begins to brown. Cool on racks.

Cut in half and fill with your favorite fillings.
