How to make it
- Preheat oven to 400 degress
- In a small bowl mix the yeast, the sugar and ¼ cup warm water. Let the yeast mixture sit for 10 – 12 minutes.
- Mix the flour and salt in a big bowl and add to the fermented yeast mixture. Start to knead the mixture into dough, while you gradually add the last ¾ cup warm water. Continue to knead the dough for about 8 minutes , until it turns into a firm, elastic dough. (if it's sticky add 1 or 2 Tbsp flour)
- Form the dough into a ball, and cover the bowl with a towel. Let the dough rise for 1 hour, and then knead it for 2 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 8 balls. Each one about the size of a Ping-Pong ball. Cover the dough balls with a towel.
- Roll out each ball gently with a rolling-pin until it is about ¼ inch thick, and about 7 inches in diameter. Try to keep the pita in as round a shape as possible.
- Line baking trays with parchment paper, and lightly grease with olive oil. Arrange as many pitas on each tray as possible. With fingertips, make little depressions throughout dough. Also make a small ridge around the perimeter of each dough circle. Stab each pita in a few spots with a fork. (very important step)
- In a small bowl, combine the garlic paste, lemon zest and Zaatar and/or Sumac. Mix well. Whisk in Olive Oil. Then spread about 3 Tbsp of this mixture on each pita.
- Bake at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes
