Easy Pita Bread Recipe

pita bread
Pita bread is a very healthy and prosperous bread used in many Eastern Mediterranean and Near Eastern cuisines.

It is a healthier alternative to sandwich bread since we can also fill it with what we like the most.

Our version is a whole grain, but it is also delicious if it is made with white flour.

To make our pita bread, we have taken the recipe from the book Cakes, pasta, cookies, meringues, cakes, sweets and savoury bread by Caroline Bretherton from the Blume publishing house.

We have changed some ingredients and quantities, but the recipe is very similar to the one in the book.

The ideal is to take them warm, but you can also store them in an airtight container and take them at another time.

We have made the bread using whole wheat flour that we have bought in El amasadero, and we have to say that the result has been spectacular, we had heard wonders about their flours, and we guarantee that they are lovely. 

Anyway, if you prefer to use white strength flour, you will also get delicious bread

  • Cuisine: Mediterranean

Ingredients SCALE (1x)

  • One teaspoon dry yeast
  • 320 grams of whole wheat bread flour (or white bread flour)
  • One teaspoon salt
  • Two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 230 millilitres of water

Ingredients SCALE (2x)

  • Two teaspoons dry yeast
  • 640 grams of whole wheat flour (or white force flour)
  • Two teaspoon salt
  • Four tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 460 millilitres of water

Ingredients SCALE (3x)

  • Three teaspoons dry yeast
  • 960 grams of whole wheat bread flour (or white bread flour)
  • Three teaspoon salt
  • Six tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 690 millilitres of water


  1. Add the yeast and 40 millilitres of warm water in a small bowl, mix them, wait 5 minutes, and stir again.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the strength flour and salt. We make a hole in the centre and add the yeast mixed with the water we had in the other container, 190 millilitres of warm water and the olive oil. We stir with our hands or with a wooden spoon, and when the dough is more or less integrated, we pass it to a floured surface. We knead until it is elastic and soft.
  3. We place the dough in a container greased with oil and cover it with a damp cloth. We let it rest in a warm place, preferably for an hour or an hour and a half, until it doubles.
  4. After that time, we take the dough and hit it on a floured surface as if it were a punching bag, well, not so much that you don't have to go overboard either.
  5. We give the dough a cylindrical shape about 5 centimetres wide and cut it into six more or less equal pieces.
  6. We work the pieces of dough one by one, leaving the others covered with a cloth. With the amount we are working on, we make a ball and knead it into an oval about 18 centimetres long. If we like to give it a round shape, no problem.
  7. We transferred the loaves to a lightly floured baking tray and placed them three at a time on two trays (because we couldn't fit them anymore). We cover them with a cloth and let them rest for 20 minutes in a warm place if possible.
  8. With the oven preheated to 240 degrees, we bake each tray for 5 minutes. After that time, we put the loaves on a rack and paint them with a brush dipped in water. When they have cooled just enough to eat them, we can feast on our delicious pita bread.
