The word pita comes from Greek which means flat. The bread is also known as Arabic or Syrian bread. However, in Arabic this bread is called Khubz. Interestingly, Pita is the origin of the world Pizza. A traditional homemade pita bread is round bread and has a pocket in the middle. While baking the bread in the oven, the steam puffs up the dough. This separates the top and bottom layers of the pita bread. If you cut the bread into two halves, it forms a pocket on each half portion of the bread.

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl, dissolve yeast with sugar and lukewarm water. Let the solution rest until yeast froths.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add whole wheat flour, salt and activated yeast solution. Start kneading the dough. Initially the dough will be sticky but after 5 minutes of kneading it will become soft, elastic and non-sticky. Add oil and knead.
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it with kitchen towel/ Cling wrap. Let the dough rest until it doubles in volume. Once the dough doubles in the volume, punch it down to release the air.
