Making pita is a wonderful thing. The feel of cool flour then sticky dough on your hands; the energy and repetition required for kneading the dough; the miracle of watching yeast raise the dough; the yeasty smell in the kitchen; and finally watching pita quickly puff up in the oven before your eyes. This Greek bread is a feast for your senses.
Yield: 12 pita bread
Preparation Time: About 2 hours 15 minutes (including rising and resting times)
