  • 2 cups / 240g all-purpose flour/cake flour
  • 1 cup / 250ml warm water SEE NOTE 1
  • 1 Tablespoon / 10g instant yeast / fast-acting yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Combine the flour, yeast, and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add water and mix to form a soft dough. Sprinkle with a bit more flour if the dough is too sticky.
  • Cover the bowl and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, turn the dough out onto a surface dusted with flour.
  • Divide the dough into portions depending on the size you prefer.
  • Roll out the dough into circular shapes about 1 cm thick.
  • Place one pita at a time on a non-stick or cast iron pan. Cook on medium heat for about 1½ minutes on each side. Turn every 30 seconds to prevent burning.
  • Cover the cooked pita to maintain the soft texture, until you are ready to serve.



  1. Ensure that the water added to the dry ingredients is just warm, not too hot or too cold. Too cold and the yeast will not enable the dough to rise and very hot water will kill the yeast. If you have a thermometer, it should read between 100°F – 115°F ( 37°C – 46°C).
