Pita Bread

Ingredients:
1 dessertspoon baking yeast
2 tsp sugar
1/2 c warm water
3 c plain flour
1 large egg or 2 medium eggs
1 TBS oil

Directions:
Add the yeast and sugar to the warm water, stir, and leave to rise for about 30 minutes.

Put the flour into a large mixing bowl and make a well in the middle. Add the eggs, the oil, and the yeast mixture. Draw the flour into the middle of the bowl little by little while mixing all the liquid ingredients into it. The dough should be as soft as your earlobe. If too soft, add more flour, if too hard, add a little more warm water. Knead the dough until well mixed, then cover the bowl with a damp tea towel and leave in a warm place, such as the airing cupboard, also that it can rise. The dough is sufficiently risen when it has doubled in volume, developed little holes on the surface and has begun to smell sour.

Roll into small balls, about the size of golf balls. Roll out thinly on a floured board. Mix all the topping ingredients together and spread over each piece of dough.

Heat a cast iron skillet in the oven (at 350 degrees). Place the rolled out dough onto skillet. Baked for approximately 8 minutes.
