Pitta Bread is definitely a winner if you are in need of a light yet filling lunch and this recipe is da boom and you should give it a go. Bread always seems like an daunting thing to bake but trust me pitta bread is easyyy to make and does not take to much time to do so! "Trusss me on dis 1"

Wholemeal Pitta Bread:
1 cup lukewarm warm water
2 tsp Active Yeast
3 cups Plain Wholemeal Flour
2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Olive Oil

1. Mix the yeast and water together and leave to froth for 15 minutes.
2. Add 2 and a half cups of the flour, the olive oil and the salt into the yeast mixture to form a soft dough.
3. Using the extra flour knead the dough for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
4. Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and leave to rise for 1 and a half hours.
5. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and flatten into thick round disks and sprinkle with a little more flour.
6. Roll each disk into an round 8-9 inch disk that is 1/4 of an inch thick.
7. Warm a frying pan on an medium heat and drizzle with a little olive oil.
8. Place one rolled out pitta bread onto the warmed pan and leave for 2 minutes (air bubbles should form; if they do not then lightly press down on the pitta bread). Then flip the pitta bread and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the pitta breads.

So I decided that this time I would take pictures of all the steps to show ya'll that I am not kidding; it is really easy to make!
