Pita bread

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Water -- plus 3 tbsp
1 tablespoon Shortening
¾ teaspoon Sugar
1½ teaspoon Salt
3 cups Bread flour
2¼ teaspoon Yeast

Add all ingredients to machine and program for dough and first rise.

Remove dough and punch down and let rest for 5 minutes. Place 13 x 9 baking pan in oven. Preheat oven to 500. On lightly floured work surface, cut dough in half and cut each half into 6 equal pieces.

Lightly sprinkle with flour. Shape pieces into smooth balls. With a lightly floured rolling pin, roll each ball into a 4" disk. Lightly sprinkle both sides with flour. Cover with a clean kitchen cloth and let rise 30 minutes on work surface. Place four pita breads on preheated baking pan. Bake about 5 minutes or until breads puff up and just begin to brown. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.

Continue baking remaining pita breads, four at a time. Breads will collapse as they cool. If they don't, prick them with a fork.
