Pita (Pareve)

 These are incredibly easy to make. I usually make baby pitas and serve with Red Pepper Walnut Spread.

500 g bread flour (1 lb, 2 oz or 3.5 Cups)
1/3 ounce dry active yeast (1 T)
1.5 cups tepid water
1 T sugar
1/2 T salt
2 T olive oil

Mix all ingredients in a food processor. The dough will be a little sticky. Place dough in a bowl, sprinkle with additional olive oil and cover. Let rise until double (takes about an an hour, about 30 minutes with the proof feature of the oven) Preheat oven to 500.  Roll pita into walnut size balls. Let rest 10 minutes. Place on baking pans (spray lightly with cooking spray, or use non stick foil). Flatten balls to 1/4 inch. Bake 5 minutes or until just starting to turn golden on edges. Great warm, but can be frozen after cooling.
