This is an easy recipe for pita bread. Use your bread machine to help the dough rise easily, otherwise - cover and let it rise in a warm place.
Altered ingredient amounts. Very good pittas! I added an extra tsp of salt but now wished I wouldn't have...I personally didn't think it needed it. I don't have a breadmaker so I disolved the yeast in warm water, added the remaining ingredients and mixed and kneaded for apprx 8 min (or until it felt right). I let it rise for 1.5 hours (until dough had doubled in size) and then followed the recipe per instructed. My oven produced 8 beautiful pittas that are pretty tasty and were easy to make.

Something else. I like the use of bread maker in this recipe, it cuts the work in half. The only thing I changed in this recipe was a way of baking the bread. I cooked it in a frying pan on the hob like a pancake, but without any butter or oil. I rolled the bread into 4-5 mm thick circles and cooked each side for about 1 min or so until there were small lightly brown circles on both sides, (heat knob turned half way). They were 1000 times better then the ones u buy from the shops and whole family loved them. - 14 Jul 2008
Great recipe! Both me and my partner loved it. It's the first recipe I tried where the pockets could actually hold anything inside. Much better than shop bought. I brushed some olive oil on a few of them before baking and it gave them a nice golden colour and a unique taste. - 14 Jul 2008
