Making your own flat bread is so easy and the reason I started experimenting was because I wanted to cut down on plastic bags. I know it’s not much but one less bag is one less bag in the landfill.
This is a recipe from zero waste chef – Anne Marie Bonneau. I didn’t want to turn on my large oven for just this one thing but even on stove top, they are incredibly soft and moreish. Normal bread making is an exact science but I think you will find pita bread is more forgiving with relaxed measurements!
380-390mls warm water (about 42 degrees C)
1 and ½ teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons olive oil plus more for greasing the bowl and for frying if cooking pitas on the stove
1 packet instant dry yeast (7g)
3 and ¼ cups all-purpose flour, divided plus more for rolling out dough
¾ cup whole wheat flour
