Hi everyone, how has life been treating you?
Since the ‘lockdown’ I have really been into making bread varieties. Usually, I would just stick to a pizza base dough, but I’ve made a plain bread loaf, flat bread, tortilla wraps and pitta bread over the months. To be honest they are all quite similar using mainly flour and water but they all taste so different and each complement a range of dishes. Since these are homemade, I opted to make them as healthy as possible, and as you can see in the images below, they are not covered in oil but tasted so good.
Garlic Herb Pitta Bread recipe (makes 6)
225g strong white bread flour
7g dried yeast
Pinch of salt
Pinch of sugar
1 tbsp oil
130ml warm water
- Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and lightly oil an oven tray.
- Place all of the dry ingredients into a bowl making a well in the centre and pour in the water and oil.
- Use your hands or a wooden spoon to form a dough and knead for 5 minutes. Shape into 6 circles, place on the tray and leave to rise for 30 minutes.
- Bake in the oven for 10 minutes and set aside until needed.
