#Recipe of homemade #souvlaki #pita bread by Andreas Lagos.

I've just found a pita bread recipe that looks totally delicious and simple. I try to avoid buying my pitas when making my own souvlaki at home as they are full of conservatives and sugars. This recipe by chef Andreas Lagos is a great alternative to the ready made ones and can be stuffed with tons of different ingredients rather than the traditional skewers of grilled pork and tzatziki.

10 gr. dry yeast
2 tsp sugar
4 tbsp sparkling water
150 gr. yogurt
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp roasted sesame
1 tbsp black sesame
320 gr. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt

1 In a cup, activate the dry yeast by combining it with sugar with warm water.

2 In a bowl, mix all the ingredients until you have a stretchy dough. Leave the dough to rest for approx. 20-25 minutes in a warm place.

3 Divide the dough into about 6-7 small pieces and flatten one of them with a rolling pin.

4 Heat up a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Place a pita and let it cook for 2-3 minutes, then flip it over and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Καλή όρεξη!
