World Bread Day 2006 - Pita Bread פיתה

World Bread Day 2006

world bread day '06
My Pita Bread...
The world is full of Breads which I didn't bake in my small kitchen.. there are so many.. so I didn't know which Bread I'll bake for the Bread day.I love to bake French-Style Country Bread or Swedish Dill Bread or Roemary Rolls from Tuscany or Moroccan Bread Farina (baked on Stones) or.. a Danish Bread or XL Bagels (arabic) or - Koulouria - sesame rings from Greece (bake them as soon as you can) or French Bread Rolls (to Die For).. or Eliotes.. those Olive Rolls from Cyprus or Za'atar Flatbread, yes as I said we love them all,the list is long.. and I bake those again and again. I was busy with reading cookbooks , looking for some new Bread recipe, something special , and you know what ?? I've found.. maybe 10 or 20 or more recipes which look SO good.But during my day outside today, I've decided to bake the most famous Israeli Bread (yes I know not in Isarel only), PITA BREAD .You can't find even 1 Israeli which has no Pita's in his freezer.. you can eat Pita Bread with salty or sweet food.. you can find Pita Bread everywhere, and It's very easy to bake them.Once I've tried Elie Nassar's (Foodman) Pita Bread recipe ,I think It's a great recipe (And all the other in his Introduction To Lebanese Cuisine should be wonderful too) .2 years ago , It was October 2004.. I've baked his Pita's and wrote about it in Ort Food forum, It was funny to get those Pita pockets.Somebody from that Forum wrote Elie in egullet Forum about me..baking his 5 Pita's with the pockets..It was a success, and today I've baked Pita's again. Here is the recipe, try them , and please let me know about the pockets..
Pita Bread (Khobz Arabi
Makes 5 6-inch Pita loaves
3 Cups Bread flour or All Purpose flour
• ½ tsp Instant yeast (or 1 tsp Active Dry yeast combined with a Tbsp sugar and ¼ cup warm water till foamy)
• ½ tsp salt
• 1 Cup warm water (reduce the water by ¼ Cup if using Active Dry yeast)
Mix the flour and salt in a bowl, then add the yeast (or yeast/water mixture) and add the water slowly while stirring with a plastic or wooden spoon until everything is combined into a ball.
You might need more or less water than the 1 cup. Once the dough comes together, transfer it to a floured surface and knead for a good ten minutes until it is soft and elastic. Roll the dough into a log and cut it into five equal parts (cut into fewer pieces if you want bigger loaves). Form each piece into a ball and put them all on a floured baking sheet.
Cover with a damp towel and let them rise in a warm place for about an hour or until almost double in size.Full step by step recipe is here

That green spice mix is called:
Zaatar,It's a Middle Eastern Spice Mix .It's made of ground spices like :sesame seeds,thyme,oregano, marjoram and salt.I buy it here in Israel, and I can send you one.
