Pita Bread - pareve
5 cups Bread flour (or more)
3 tablespoons Sugar
2 teaspoons Salt
2 packages Dry yeast
2 cups Water
1/4 cup Oil
Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, salt and yeast in large bowl of
electric mixer and blend well. Heat water and oil in small saucepan
until very warm (120 to 130F). Add warm liquid to flour mixture.
Blend at low speed until moistened. Beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
By hand stir in 2 1/2 to 3 cups flour until dough pulls cleanly away
from sides of bowl. On floured surface knead in 1/2 to 1 cup flour
until dough is smooth and elastic with blisters under surface, about
10 minutes. Place dough in greased bowl, cover loosely with plastic
wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place until light and doubled
in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours. Punch down dough, divide in 2 parts,
then mold into balls. Allow to rest on counter, covered with
inverted bowl, 15 minutes. Divide dough in 14 equal pieces and shape
into balls. On lightly floured surface, roll each ballinto 7-inch
circle about 1/8-inch thick. Place circles about 2 inches apart on
cornmeal-sprinkled baking sheets. Cover and let rise in warm place
about 30 minutes. Bake at 450F 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges turn
light golden brown.
