Easy Homemade Pita Bread Recipe Video

Chef John is approaching 6 million views on Youtube for his legendary homemade Pita Bread Recipe and he steps you through the process in an easy to follow way and with plenty of humor. He suggests that you let your Pita rise for around 2 hours.

This could be slightly more or less but the trick is to wait until it has doubled in size. You then make 8 small, round loaves and your rise time will be about 30 minutes.

Another tip he recommends is that you roll it out and let it rest 5 minutes before grilling. Click Play above to watch the video now ^
