How to make it

  • Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Add sugar and stir until dessolved. Let sit for 10-15 minutes until water is frothy.
  • Combine flours, xanthan gum and salt in large bowl using a HEAVY-DUTY mixer (Kitchen Aid or equivalent). Pour in yeast mixture and egg (or egg substitute) and mix on medium speed using paddle attachment.
  • Slowly add 1/2-1 cup warm water and mix on medium for 2 minutes. Add enough water so that dough is soft and tacky, not liquid.
  • Coat large bowl with vegetable oil and place dough in bowl. Turn upside down so all dough is oiled. Allow to sit in warm place for about 2-3 hours or until it has increased in size.
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Using bottom rack of oven, place baking sheet in oven as it preheats.
  • Pinch off 12 small pices of dough and place pieces on floured surface.
  • Roll each into a circle, about 5-6 inches across and 1/4 inch thick.
  • Place several circles on preheated baking sheet and bake for 4 minutes until bread puffs up. Turn over and bake for additional 2 minutes.
  • Remove each from baking sheet with spatula and gently push down each puff. Repeat with the rest of the raw dough. Serve immediately or freeze pita in a plastic storage bag for up to a month.
