Homemade Greek Pita Bread recipe

Servings: 6
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


1 cup very warm water
1 packet (1/4 oz) active dry yeast
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups bread flour plus a little extra
1 tsp salt
1 TBSP olive oil plus a little extra


1. Mix together the water and yeast in a large mixing bowl.

2. Stir in both flours and the salt until everything is well combined and a sticky dough is formed.

3. Knead the dough by hand on a lightly floured surface for about 7 minutes.

4. Roll the dough into a smooth ball and place in a large clean bowl.

5. Drizzle 1 TBSP olive oil over the dough then flip it around a couple times to evenly coat the dough in oil.

6. Loosely cover the bowl and place in a warm place until dough has doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

7. Punch down the dough and separate into 6 equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a ball the sprinkle a little flour on the dough balls and let them sit for 20 minutes.

8. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.

9. When the skillet is hot drizzle a little olive oil in the pan and tilt to coat.

10. Working one at a time stretch a dough ball into a circle roughly 7-inches in diameter then place in the hot skillet. Cook for about 30 seconds then flip the dough over and cook for about 2 more minutes or until dough begins to blister. Transfer the pita to a plate and repeat this process with the remaining dough balls.
