Mangia: Wholemeal Pitta Bread With Black Olives.

We love it when we find a recipe that is so simple that when we know how to make it we can then add and change ingredients as we please. We got a recipe for Pitta Bread from the chef at my (Kelly's) work after she had made it one day for snack. We couldn't believe that it was made with two ingredients; flour and natural yogurt, so decided to make our own version.

It worked out really, really well, so now we're thinking about all the different varieties we could try. It's amazing to us that something we never thought about making ourselves could be so easy. Pitta Bread is one of those things that we'd just buy, but not anymore!!!

What you need:

190g of self raising wholemeal flour.
200g of natural Greek yogurt.
Pinch of Salt.
1/4 cup of sliced black olives. (Feel free to add more)

What to do:

Combine the flour and yogurt, with the salt and knead until you get a soft dough.

Sprinkle in the olives and mix in as you knead.

Leave in the fridge for an hour or overnight - depends on how patient you are!

Heat a non stick pan until very, very hot.

Form the desired shapes of your pitta bread and place in the pan, allowing them to crisp on each side. They should puff up slightly.

They tend to be a little softer on the inside, but you can still eat them like that or toast them for extra crispiness like you would do when you buy them from a shop.

And there you have it, your very own Pitta Bread!

Have you ever made Pitta Bread before? It is something you would like to try?

Buon Appetito!
