How to Prepare Homemade Greek Pita for Slow Cooker Lamb Pitas Recipe

Very easy Greek pita recipe.

Ingredients: 1 cup (250 ml) lukewarm water, 2 teaspoons (10 ml) dry yeast, 1/2 teaspoon (3 ml) granulated sugar, 2 ¾ cups plain flour, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) sea salt, 2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil

Instructions: In a bowl of an electric mixer, combine lukewarm water, sugar, and dry yeast. Allow standing for about 15 minutes until frothy. Using the dough hook attachment, mix the yeast mixture in an electric mixer.

Add olive oil and sea salt. Continue mixing, then gradually add plain flour, stopping when the dough is well combined, but still slightly sticky.

Knead the dough for 4-5 minutes, then set aside and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size.

Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 400º F (200º C). Arrange a baking tray on the top shelf of the oven. Divide raised dough into 6 equal portions, then, using a wooden rolling pin, roll out with plenty of flour to avoid sticking.

Working in batches, place pitas on the baking tray and bake until the entire pita puffs. Repeat with the remaining pitas. Remove baked Greek pitas from the oven and transfer to a serving bowl. Greek pitas are ready to use!

Serve with cooked lamb, fresh herbs, pickled onion, Dijon mustard, aioli sauce and French fries.
