These pitta breads are so easy to make, just leave the dough in the machine to prove, then roll out and bake in under 10 mins. We have used a mix of wholemeal and white flour but you can use just white or wholemeal if you prefer.

  2. Classic mode Step 2

    When the dough has risen and the timer goes off, turn the dough onto a lightly oiled worktop.  Cut the dough into 9 equal pieces. Place one piece at a time on a baking tray and roll out to an oval shape about 12 cm long. Repeat with all the dough using 2-3 baking trays and spacing well apart. Leave to prove for 10 mins while preheating the oven.

  3. Classic mode Step 3

    Heat the oven to 240°C (220°C fan, gas mark 8).  When hot, bake the pittas for 6 mins. Remove from the oven, turn the pittas over and return to the oven for a further 2 mins. Remove from the oven and wrap in a clean tea towel. This will help soften the dough. When cool serve split with salad or cut into strips for dips.
