directions

  • In a big bowl combine flour and salt. Mix in olive oil and water.
  • Knead into a soft and sturdy dough. It should be smooth. Cover the bowl and allow to rest for 40 minutes at room temperature.
  • Form dough into about 7 equally sized balls. Roll out the balls to 1/2 inch thickness (note: these wont rise much, so make them as thick as youd like them to be in the end.).
  • Place on a paper-lined baking sheet, brush with water and sprinkle with the sesame and nigella seeds.
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 200°C/400°F for 15 minutes or until tester comes out clean.

    Made this recipe yesterday and found it turned out pretty good for first time making homemade pita. I decided to cook them in cast iron skillet on stove instead of oven. I lightly rubbed olive oil in my skillet with a papertowel. Will make them again for sure.

    It took much longer than 15 minutes, because when i cut one open it was still raw inside. Then after it was cooked it was hard as a rock. Am i supposed to brush them with oil or something before baking??

    We baked these for Elevenses the other day and served with carrots sticks, yogurt and watermelon slices. I replaced one cup of white flour with whole wheat. I love the flavor of the nigella seeds! Good with a little butter or olive oil straight from the oven. Made for Veg Tag/August.

    Followed the recipe exactly, except used half the ingredients and made smaller sized dough balls but it was still raw after 15 minutes and then hard as a rock after trying to bake them a few more.
