Pane Pita al forno - Valle del Crati

A very special bread, with the characteristic 'pocket' shape, which swells during baking, perfect for filling in many different ways.

It is quick to prepare and will keep for a couple of days, just warm it up for a few seconds in a frying pan.

We suggest using our favourite spreads and pickles to create unique flavour combinations with chicken, kebabs, tuna or salmon.

Pita is a typical Mediterranean recipe, popular in Greece and now famous all over the world!

Here are the ingredients and the procedure to prepare it at home. 

Ingredients for 4 pita bread

- 250 g flour 0

- 150 ml water

- 2 g dry brewer's yeast

- 20 g oil

- 5 g salt 


Pour the flour and yeast into a bowl, add the water and start mixing with a spoon; when the flour is absorbed, add the salt and oil and knead with your hands until you have a smooth dough.

Leave to rise in an oiled bowl covered with cling film for about two hours (it should double in volume).

After this time, divide into 4 loaves of 100 g each and roll out with a rolling pin, giving an elongated shape. Let rise on a baking tray lined with baking paper for another 30 minutes.

Baking is a very important step and requires a well-heated static oven at 250°, if with a baking stone even better. Bake the pita for 5 minutes and stuff to taste!
