No-oven Pitta Bread

During quarantine times i tried many homemade  bread recipes and yes nothing as homemade baking recipes it's not just so yummy, but also the smell we enjoyed with baking time is what make the bread so delicious and perfect. You should make this easy no oven Pitta bread. I made about 18 loaves of pitta bread but if you want just 10 loaves, add half of the quantities. 
For example, for 500 grams of flour add the same yeast amount but with 1 tablespoon of sugar, half amount of milk, 1 teaspoon of salt and  3/4 cup of water. I baked my own bread on a skillet, it really work so good and gave me a soft and delicious pitta bread loaves.

Pitta Bread Recipe

Perp time: 20 mins
Resting time: 90 mins
Baking time: 30 mins
Yeild: 18 loaves


1 kilograms all purpose flour
1 tablespoon yeast
2 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup warm milk
1 and 3/4 cup warm water

The way:

In a large bowl, place all the ingredients except water ( i prefer to add it gradually, because there are diffrient types of flour some take more and some less water).
- Add water while you knead, keep nead your dough for 10 minutes until your dough become soft and elastic. 
- Shape your dough as a ball. Grease your dough and bowl with olive oil, cover with plastic wrap or with kitchen twol. Rest the dough in a warm place for 45 to 60 Minutes.
- Take a small ball of your dough. Dust flour on your surface board, with a roller spread the ball as a small Pitta loaf.
- Transmit the loaf to a kitchen towel, and cover with another towel. Rest the loaves for another 45 minutes.
- In a hot skillet, bake each loaf on a medium heat until you have a blond color on each side.
- Cover the hot pita bread with kitchen towel( i cover it to let the steam soften the loaves).
- Serve it warm or cool, or freeze the rest the same day for 1 month. I freeze it after it cool completely, and when i need i just get it out of the freezer and defrost. It tastes as a fresh bread.
