This super easy Greek pita bread recipe with just 2-ingredients is perfect for making gyros and sandwiches.
Self rising flour and Greek yogurt.
Add the Greek yogurt to a large mixing bowl and gradually add the flour, mixing with a wooden spoon until a ball starts to form.
Knead the dough on the floured surface for 5 to 10 minutes until it becomes elastic and smooth, then form into a ball.
Place the dough ball in a clean bowl covered with a towel and allow it to rest in a warm place for 15 to 20 minutes.
For the best results, roll the dough balls out as thin as possible as they will rise during cooking.
Remove the dough from the bowl and cut it into 6 pieces. Roll the dough balls using a rolling pin on the work surface.
Heat a large cast-iron skillet on medium heat with a spoonful of olive oil. Once the oil is hot, place the flattened dough (cooking one at a time) into the hot skillet.
Cook for 2 minutes on either side, then transfer the pita bread to a plate and cover with a towel to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake the flattened dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 8-10 minutes.
If you have a bread machine with a dough hook attachment, it will mix and knead the dough perfectly.
Allow the pita bread to cook on medium heat for 2 minutes without moving them to allow the heat to rise through the bread to puff properly before turning it over.
