I'm taking my kitchen paperless (at least as far as non-bound recipes go) so welcome to my cookbook in a blog!

Pita Bread

3 C white flour
1 tsp salt
1 C warm water
vegetable oil

Combine flour and salt.  Stir in enough water so the dough pulls from the sides of the bowl and ceases to be sticky.  Stir until smooth then knead for 5 minutes.

Divide dough into 12 portions and shape into smooth balls.  Cover with damp towels and let rest 10 minutes.

Press each flat and roll into a 6-7" circle.  Lightly oil a skillet or griddle.  Gently stretch each as thin as possible.  Cook about 90 seconds.  They will be brown, and bubbly spots will appear at the bottom.  turn and brown the other side.
