Instructions

Pronto Pita Bread

1.
measure + mix

Measure and combine 1 1/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon yeast, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a mixing bowl. Carefully add 1/2 cup warm water and 2 teaspoons olive oil. Mix by hand, kneading about 50 turns.

2.
cover + rest

Place the dough (it will be sticky) on a floured surface and cover. Let the dough rest for at least 10 minutes.

3.
preheat + divide + shape

Preheat a skillet on your stovetop over medium-high heat. Divide your dough into about 8 to 12 pieces, depending on how large you like your pita bread. Have your kids shape each piece of dough into a ball and then flatten each ball into a circle.

4.
cook + flip

Cook the dough on your hot skillet, about 1 minute on the first side, and then flip to cook the other side for another minute. Serve with the Shakshuka Poached Eggs!
