DIRECTIONS

1.

For the Pita

1.

Combine the yeast, water, and flour in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix to thoroughly combine the ingredients. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the sponge sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly.

dry active yeast

8 g dry active yeast

Water, warm (~95 °F)

225 g Water, warm (~95 °F)

all purpose flour, divided

120 g all purpose flour, divided

2.

Add the oil, salt, and remaining flour to the bowl. Using the dough hook attachment, knead the dough until homogenous and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. The dough should be able to pass the ‘windowpane test’ at this point.

Olive oil

20 g Olive oil

kosher salt

6 g kosher salt

all purpose flour, divided

240 g all purpose flour, divided

3.

Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover, and let it proof at room temperature for 1-2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.

4.

Meanwhile, place pizza steel, ceramic baking tile, or a large rimmed baking sheet on the bottom rack of the oven. Preheat the oven to 500°F. This will give ample time for the pizza steel/baking tile/baking sheet to absorb the heat.

5.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 6-8 equal pieces, depending on your desired pita size.

6.

Roll the divided pieces into dough balls. Cover the dough with a lightly greased piece of plastic wrap. Allow the dough balls to rise for 20-35 minutes at room temperature until puffed.

7.

Once the dough is ready. Using a small dowel or rolling pin, roll the dough into rounds about ¼ inch thick. Dust with flour as necessary to prevent sticking or tearing.

8.

Working with one round at a time, carefully transfer the dough onto the preheated surface in the oven. Cook each pita for about 2 minutes on each side, the pita should puff while cooking. Alternatively, use a pizza oven set between 550°F- 600°F to cook the pitas.

9.

Transfer the cooked pita to a plate, cover with a clean dishcloth to keep them warm. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving with hummus, tzatziki sauce, tomatoes, cucumber, feta, red onion, and/or falafel.

whole milk yogurt

440 g whole milk yogurt

3.

Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface.

4.

Divide the dough into 100-gram portions.

Repeat with the remaining dough.

10.

Spread an even layer of pesto on the top of each flatbread. Top with chicken, mozzarella cheese, and parmesan cheese. Bake the pizza in a 600°F pizza oven (or a 500°F oven) until the cheese has melted and has started to bubble.

3.

Preheat a large cast-iron skillet to a surface temperature of 475°F.
