~Traditional Pita Bread Recipe~


  • 1 1/8 cup warm water
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1.5 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon clover honey
  • 1.5 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • Bread maker

Optional: You can add any herbs or spices to this recipe for additional flavor.


  1. Place all ingredients into the bread machine. Make sure to select Dough setting and then start.
  2. Do not open the bread machine while dough is rising.
  3. Place dough onto a lightly floured surface.
  4. Gently roll and stretch the dough into a 12 inch rope.
  5. With a sharp knife, divide the dough into 10 pieces.
  6. Roll each piece into a small ball.
  7. With your hand or rolling-pin, make each ball into a 7 inch circle.
  8. Place the dough onto a baking sheet, and cover with a towel.
  9. Let the pita rise about 30 minutes or until puffy.
  10. Preheat the oven to 450 D or 230 C.
  11. Place 4 pitas on a wire cake rack in the oven.
  12. Bake pitas until puffed and lightly golden brown on top.
  13. Remove from oven and place the cooled pita in a sealed bag to store.
  14. I like to drizzle fresh lemon and olive oil over the top of the pitas just before I remove them out of the oven.
