    LOL! “Pita, Paul & Mary’s”… I would eat sandwiches at
    this food truck!

    I like baking & have made quite a lot of bread, can’t wait to try the PITA bread that was backed rather then grilled & never developed the pocket which was very disappointing as you might image. Have watched several of the bread videos & think that you should say that backers should be using DISTILLED WATER with yeast as most water is chlorinated & will kill the yeast as will PROLONGED direct contact with SALT

    Much faster to put them in the oven, full balloons every time.

    I don’t know which is best, partial puffage or full inflation. Both sound pretty good though. Thanks.

    Do you have to keep applying olive oil to the pan when grilling them? My oil started to burn after a few minutes and I found it was just easier to not use oil at all when grilling

  21. James DeRuvo

    naan bread please!

  22. nedj10

    interesting to watch this come to together Chef John, I do wonder if you made the same dough with whole wheat how hard it would be to make Indian Chapatti seeing as it is cooked in the same “until it puffs” method.

  23. marcanthony thompson

    like for partial puff-age or full inflation

    CHEF JOHN: I’ve been teaching myself breadmaking lately, and after experimenting with your recipe, I have some comments and tips to share for anyone attempting this recipe to consider. Before I start though, I’d just like to say, as an American, that I only just recently discovered how VASTLY BETTER mediterranean style pitas (also known variously as ‘pocketless pitas’, ‘gyro bread’, or ‘schwarma bread’) are than the unpleasantly tough & tasteless commercial “pita pockets” I grew up with.

    Recipe Tweaks I recommend:

    1) After a fair amount of testing, both with and without, I’ve found that the flavor of the result is dramatically improved by replacing ALL 240gr water with an equal weight of the tangy liquid whey drained from a container of plain unwhisked yogurt (aside: whey freezes perfectly, so always save it – never dump it). The subtle and faintly dairy tang in the finished bread is slightly reminiscent of the tang of Thomas’s English Muffins, with a hint of unsweetened donut. It also seems to improve the texture – the resulting breads are a little softer, more tender, and stay pliable longer.

    2) Try adding 1 tbsp sugar to the yeast when making your sponge. This small addition intruduces a myriad of very subtle changes – it seems to help the yeast activate faster and more fully, helps improve browning during the very short cook time, and even though the amount is too small to taste directly, it’s absence (if omitted) is felt in the finished bread. It works for me.

    3) The second most important change behind switching the water with whey is to increase the rise times – let the dough TRIPLE in bulk, rather than double, in the first two risings (roughly 90 & 45 mins respectively, rather than 60 & 30). Also, a tip: for the second rise I use standard 8” pizza dough rising pans (oiled), and simply stack them, and place a glass lid on the top pan, instead of wasting cling wrap. After rolling out, spray the tops lightly with oil, and increase the final rising time (3rd rise) from 5-10 to 10-15mins. The resulting texture is softer, more tender, and (to me) tastes better.

    4) Cooking: The plancha/griddle method works fine, but I find it MUCH faster to simply bake the breads on a pizza stone, 4 per pass. I place a 16×16” ceramic pizza stone in the bottom of the upper third of my oven, preheat to 450F during the 45 min second rise, and after rolling out the 8 doughs I’ll do the final 10-15 min rise directly on a pair of large sheets of parchment (figure 4 doughs per 14×14” square), and then bake off the entire batch right on the parchment in 2 passes, atop the stone. For each batch, use a large aluminum pizza peel to place a parchment of 4 breads atop the stone, bake 2:30 on the first side, briefly remove the breads to flip them over, then bake 2:30 longer on the second side, or until golden highlights begin to appear. Cool fully on a wire rack or pizza screen.

    5) Baking recipes are more accurate, and foolproof, when written by weight rather than volume. Here is my version: For the sponge: 240 gr of water or liquid yogurt whey, 2 tsp active dry baker’s yeast, 3 tsp sugar, 150 gr all purpose flour or maida. After proofed/bubbly, add: 21 gr oil, 7 gr salt, whisk, then add 250 gr flour (plus or minus 5-10 grams, depending on local humidity, brand of flour used, and how you store it). For stand mixer use, I knead on low for 2-3 mins until a wet shaggy mass forms, let rest 5 mins, then knead 1-2 (sometimes 3) mins more on low.

    6: Last, usage. I store these in my bread drawer in the fridge in a 1 gal freezer bag, where they keep fine for upto a week (food science wonks can triple that with a little calcium proprionate). Even more than gyro wraps, I love to lightly warm these and cut them in triangles for greek salad or use with hummus. They also make a good dunking bread for olive oil, or even a decent stand-in for naan. They’re also great split in half for paninis, tortas and breakfast sandwiches (eggs, cheese & sausage). Heck, they’re even good treated like bagels – split, toast, par cool, then smear with cream cheese and either lox or jelly. I used to make flour tortillas semi regularly, but these have completely replaced them as our default household alternative bread choice.

    Hope all that helps some of my fellow self-taught bread aficianados out there. Cheers.

    I don’t know if it’s a common thing where he lives, but for me too much intonation in the voice for no reason sounds fake and irritating.

  39. Acheel A.Hamoud

    it’s not Pita Bread! you need to add milk to the dough.

    1. Roving Punster

      Actually, that is not consistently true, because flat bread styles like this vary slightly from region to region and household to household, so it really depends on where and what you grew up with on that. I’d speculate that people who have one or more milk producing animals tend to replace call outs for water in all their baked goods with whey (not milk, but rather whey … a byproduct from making butter and yogurt), and people who dont use water. Whey is definitely preferable if you have it, but in today’s supermarket-driven world, not only do people tend not to own milking animals, most people dont even how how to make their own butter or yogurt (very sad), so it’s become somewhat rare for home cooks in (sub)urban settings to use whey, and most don’t even know what it is. The same dichotomy is true for Naan.

    I love your recipe, chef. What makes your video different is you allow “eyeballing” ingredients and timeframes. Other videos sound like exact science that it scares you away. Anyway, this morning I followed your recipe and it was the best pita bread I’ve ever tasted. Thank you!

    Chef john, I thought yeast needed sugar to activate, but in this case you used no sugar. Also, a general question, but why when making, say, pizza dough, do you want it to rise even though you just push and roll it flat again? What’s the whole point of the rise? Thanks

    one of my favorite easy dinners or lunches is a pita pocket sandwich that I kind of discovered by accident because I had leftover tika masala and no leftover rice. was too hung over to feel like making more rice, and didn’t want to just eat the masala alone, so I cut a pita in half and shoveled that tika masala inside each one, brushed the outside with some olive oil and kosher salt and sriracha, then popped them in the toaster oven somewhere between 350 and 400 for about 6 or 7 minutes. 10/10. now one of my girlfriends favorite dishes.

    Is it possible to over knead this? I’m making for the first time and don’t have a stand mixer so am kneading/mixing by hand. Only had to use 1 3/4 cups of flour. Kneading for 5-6 minutes yielded dough that wasn’t what I would call supple. Not tough but not supple. Letting it rest now, hopefully it still works out.

    Hi! So, I was watching this and I noticed you added no sugar in with your yeast and warm water. I was told you have to add sugar to yeast lest it meet it’s certain doom? How does this work for this recipe? Is this a mythical tale defiled and handed down or do you absolutely need sugar for the yeast to sing, ” I will survive” during the rising process?

    Thanks for this Chef John. The first weekend I found this video, I made it four times in three days to much rejoicing at home. Paired it with home made roasted red pepper hummus and the wife was loving it.

  280. Eliana Richards

    As someone who makes and rolls pizza dough every day, his uneven dough balls make me cringe slightly (though I imagine their flatter shape has must have an advantage to them). I love your channel though. And your recepies are the bomb.



  282. CARNY 666

    I’m partially puffed.

  283. urmila patel

    what kind of flour is used to make this bread?

  284. Alexandru EPURAN

    My extreme puffiness… noted!

  285. Stephen H

    I only have partial puffage when I drink heavily. Full inflation is more the norm….

  286. It's Okay to Eat Mayo

    I add 1/4 sugar with my dough when I make this. I roll it thinner & I bake it in a 425 F oven.

  287. Love Mind

  343. 0000 two

    Nice video and narration (:

  344. shaharma7

    In order for all the pita to turn into a balloon, once you put the pita in the frying pan, you turn it over after ten seconds just before bubbles begin to form. No more than ten seconds! Then turn them every 30 seconds and of course not press the pita so that no hole will be created and the air will come out of it. By the way, you do not need any oil, not in the dough or in the pan, the pita does not stick and it tastes better and healthier without oil.

  355. Yassi

    I did this! I screw it up at first (forgot to add the salt and oil) but then I fixed it and it still came out yummy. Everyone liked it.

    Kept doing this and now I’m comfortable making it. Very similar to a pizza dough.

    I stuffed this with hummus, falafel, tomatoes and cucumber. It was yummy!

  361. Nick Meale

    Chef John I have heard that the dough needs to prove for at least 24 hours in order to be easily digested, anything less will course indigestion. Thoughts?

  369. Orlos The Druid

    peanut butter and strawberry preserves…….mmmmmm

  370. Loren Chorley

    I’ve had 100% success getting them to the “full puff” stage (I call it going full pillow, but you know po-tay-toe po-tar-toe) by flipping them quickly on the first two goes. The dough has to be rolled a little thinner than what’s given here. By eye I’d say no more than 5mm. Then into the pan, give it 5 to 10 seconds, then 5 to 10 on the other side and back to the original side and leave it until it puffs; it can take a little while but it always puffs in the end.
    I think this works because it creates a kind of seal on either side which allows the steam in the middle to push the layers apart without breaking the crust.

  371. The Wolf.P.S.

    Arent they a little thick for souvlaki

  372. Frank Gerlach

    Just put all the rounds on a sheet pan and put it in the oven . They all will puff up completely like you said they would occasionaly do. Bake to desired doness. That’s it and no messing with the one at a time on top of the stove.

  373. I. Korezom

    Is it possible to make this without a stand mixer? I’ve switched to making my own hummus, but I still spend way too much on pita bread, but a stand mixer is a bit of an investment.

  374. Mary Mikel

    Jesus Christ is coming back soon repent and be prepared, Romans chapter 10 verse 9 because, if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Forgive me if I miss quoted this scripture, go check it out.

  375. caligula minus

    I grilled it on the side and puff it in hot oven. It works, puff all the way as a balloon. Got that technique from people making Egyptian bread on YouTube.

  400. kw531

    Great recipe. I’ve made it twice. The first time I was hit and miss with the puffage. 6 of the 8 were half puffed. The second time 6 of 7 were full puffs (I dropped one, hence the 7 instead of 8). Highly recommend!
