Pita (or flat bread/pita pocket) is a traditional middle eastern bread and a big part of the mediterranean cuisine.

Many know it as the other half of a Hummus plate or the edible container for Falafel, both great uses.

At our home it’s the basic bread and the kids take to kindergarten a pita sandwich almost everyday.
In this recipe, apart from regular pitas will learn how to easily make Za’atar pita and sesame pita too.

For this Pita recipe please first follow the multipurpose dough recipe

Steps

1
Done

Prepare the multipurpose dough recipe (link above).
Now that you have the dough prepared, let's make Pitas!

First, preheat the oven to whatever is the highest temperature. In my case it's 275°C/530°F.
It is important to bake pitas at very high temperatures!

Cut the dough to 15 even balls.

Place each ball on a dry lightly dusted surface and press into a flat disc using a rolling pin.
Place about 4-5 discs in a baking sheet covered with baking paper.
Place in the oven for 4-5 minutes.
That is it!

* The pita should be pale, with only a few brown speckles.
* You can make the first batch with just 2 pitas to learn the perfect time.
* After the pitas cool you can store in a bag or even freeze them.

Zaatar Topping

I would say that pita with Za’atar is one of the most known foods in my area and it is so easy to make!

In a small bowl mix 3 tablespoons of Za’atar spice with 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
With a spoon, spread the oil+Za’atar mix all over the pita.

Bake as stated in the steps above.

Sesame Topping

Prepare a little bit of sugar water. 1 teaspoon of sugar and a bit of hot water. Make sure that there is no sugar residue in the cup.

Lightly brush each pita and sprinkle sesame seeds. Don't be a a scrimp, sprinkle with love.

Bake as stated in the steps above.
Enjoy!
