- 2 Tablespoons Yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- 6 cups all purpose flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 2 cup lukewarm water

Combine flour, sugar and salt in large bowl.
Make a volcano out of the flour/salt mix and pour the yeast water in.
Slowly add 1 cup of warm water and oil, and stir with wooden spoon.
Place dough on floured surface and knead for 10-15 minutes. When the dough is no longer sticky and is smooth and elastic, it has been successfully kneaded.
Allow to sit in a warm place for about 3 hours, or until it has doubled in size.
Once doubled, roll out in a rope, and pinch off 10-12 small pieces. Place balls on floured surface. Let sit covered for 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 500 deg F. and make sure rack is at the very bottom of oven. Be sure to also preheat your baking sheet.
Roll out each ball of dough with a rolling pin into circles. Each should be about 5-6 inches across and 1/4 inch thick.
Bake each circle for 4 minutes until the bread puffs up. Turn over and bake for 2 minutes.
Remove each pita with a spatula from the baking sheet and add additional pitas for baking.
Take spatula and gently push down puff. Immediately place in storage bags.
