- 380 gr GF flour for all purpose use or for bread
- 8gr GF dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar (for the yeast)
- 2 tablespoons warm water (for the yeast)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 280 ml warm water (40ο C approximately)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- extra olive oil to grill the pitas
- thyme (optional)
- Mix the dry yeast with the sugar and the 2 tablespoons water well and let aside for 10 minutes to start waking up
- Mix all the rest of the ingredients altogether without the salt
- Let them in a warm place for 1 hour or in the oven in 50ο C for half an hour (you can see the dough below-1st foto-after raising)
- Knead a bit the dough adding the salt and divide the dough in 8 balls
- Let them again for 15 minutes rise a bit
- Cut a baking paper a bit bigger than what you expect that your pitas will be
- Add olive oil on this baking paper and make the pitas on it adding a bit of oil also on the upper surface – see middle foto below
- Add the pita in the pan and unfold/peel awas the baking paper (that should be on the upper side of the pan and on the inner side of the pan the pita) – see 3rd foto below
- Warm a pan with a bit of olive oil and grill each side until it gets some points that are golden brown
- I like to sprinkle on them a bit of thyme when they are ready and I am stapling one on the other
You need a bit of patience to make each pita, cause this dough is not easy to handle but they are very tasty!
Hint! Use olive oil for your hands, so that the dough is not so much sticking.
If you want to make suvlakia, here is the rest you need:
Tzatziki – that matches fantastic with pork but you can of course eat it also with chicken!
Sauce for the grilled chicken – if you do your suvlaki with chicken and not pork and you need something different than tzatziki!
Suvlakia – the assembly: Suvlaki – How to?
