3 cups of unbleached white flour 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt 1 tablespoon of sugar 2 teaspoons of yeast 11/2 cups of warm water 2 tablespoons of butter or your favorite vegetable/peanut oil
Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add oil/butter and water. Knead for ten minutes. Form the dough into a ball and coat with oil, set into a bowl, and let rise for 90 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Punch down your dough-ball, then divide it into 8 balls. Dust them with flour on both sides and, using a rolling-pin, flatten them into discs.
Bake the pitas in your 400* oven on a stone or heavy, flat pan for approximately 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
