Homemade Pita Bread

1 cup (8 oz.) lukewarm warm water (about 105–110°F)
1 tablespoon sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons (1 package) active dry active yeast
~3 cups all-purpose flour (or enough to form a soft and slightly sticky dough)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 3/4 teaspoons salt

  • Add the warm water, sugar, and yeast to the bowl of a stand mixer along with 1 cup of flour. Whisk everything together until uniform and set it aside for 15 minutes. The mixture should bubble and foam.
  • Add the olive oil and salt, along with 1 1/2 cups of flour. Mix on low speed, using a dough hook attachment, until the dough is soft and no longer stick to the sides of the bowl. If it does stick, add an additional 1/4 cup of flour at a time (we added 1/2 cup more for a total of 2 cups).
  • Knead on low for 5 to 6 minutes.* Remove the dough from the bowl, turn it out onto a floured work surface and form it into a ball.
