Pita Bread 

Pita bread stuffed/filled with a good salad is a perfect lunch or dinner a hot summer day. But this pita bread tastes great with a good spread like tzatziki and a glass of red wine.

Ingredients:

  • 30 g live yeast (2 teaspoons dry yeast)
  • 350 g water, finger-warm
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 500 g all-purpose flour

Directions:

Dissolve the live yeast in the water. If you use dry yeast, add some sugar to the water and wait a few minutes till the yeast start to foam. 

Add the salt to half the flour, and mix it in the yeast/water mixture. Add the rest of the flour a little at a time, until the dough is elastic but not sticky. You might not need all the four. Knead the dough for 5-6 minutes on medium on a stand mixer. 

Let the dough rise covered for about 1 hour, until the dough is doubled in volume.

Pour the dough unto a flour dusted workplace. Cut the dough up into 6-8 parts, and roll them into balls.

Preheat the oven to 500℉ (250℃), with a pizza stone in.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchmentpaper. 

Roll each ball into a flat circle and leave the breads to rise on the baking sheets, covered for about 10 minutes.

Bake the Pita breads for about 7-9 minutes until they are golden brown and puffed up as small pillows. Let thew Pita's cool on a wire rack, covered with a kitchen towel.

Enjoy!

 

6-8 stk

Pitabrød

Ingredienser:

  • 30 g gær (2 tsk tørgær)
  • 350 g lunkent vand
  • 1 tsk salt
  • 500 g hvedemel

Fremgangsmåde:

Opløs gæren i vandet. Bruger du tørgær, så kom en smule sukker i og vent til det skummer.

Kom salten i halvdelen af melet og ælt det i gærblandingen. Kom resten af melet i lidt ad gangen, indtil dejen er smidig uden at være klistret. Det er ikke sikkert at du skal bruge al melet.

Sæt dejen til hævning i omkring 1 time, indtil dejen er doblet i volumen. 

Hæld dejen ud på et meldrysset bord, og del dejen i 6-8 lige store dele. Rul hver del til en bolle.

Opvarm ovnen til 500℉ (250℃) evt. med en bagesten i. Kom bagepapir på et par bageplader.

Rul hver bolle ud til en flad cirkel. Læg brødene på bagepladerne og lad den hæve tildækket i ca 10 minutter.

Bag brødene i 7-9 minutter indtil de er lysebrune og pustede op. Afkøl brødene på en bagerist med et viskestykke over.

Velbekomme!
