🍲 Ingredients

Flour – For this recipe I used self-rising flour. This is key! Self-raising flour is not the same as all-purpose flour. This type of flour is enriched with added nutrition and it contains baking powder that helps in the process of making these pitas so quickly.

Greek Yogurt – I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, Greek yogurt is one of the most versatile ingredients to have in your fridge. It’s protein-packed, good for your gut, and it can be used in many ways. Use it in marinades, use it as a substitute to sour cream or mayo, in dressings, or even to make bread like these 2-ingredient Pita Pockets.

👩‍🍳 How to Make Pita Pockets

  1. Add Greek yogurt to a large mixing bowl. Add in the self raising flour gradually, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring after each addition and stir to combine and a dough starts to form. Form the dough into a ball.
  2. Dust a work surface with flour and knead the dough for 3-5 minutes until the dough is a bit more smooth, holds together and forms a ball easily. If you find the dough too sticky, add 2-4 tbsp more flour and knead to combine. Let the dough rest for 15-30 minutes on the counter.
  3. Divide the dough into 6 equal parts and form each into a ball. Roll out each ball into a thin circle, 5-6 inches in width.
  4. Heat a cast iron or heavy-bottomed non-stick skillet over medium heat and once hot (this may take 3-4 minutes) place a rolled-out dough round in the pan. Cook for 1 minute on one side, until golden brown patches appear. Flip and cook for another 1 minute and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Cook for 3-4 more minutes, flipping every 30 seconds for a total of 5-6 minutes. The pita should be a deep golden brown and slightly puffed up.Repeat with remaining dough until all are cooked.Enjoy topped with fresh oregano and our best ever tzatziki recipe or use as a pita pocket – stuffed with your favourites: chicken, egg salad, veggies or your favourite sandwich ingredients.

🤔 Common Questions

How do I make self-rising flour?

If you don’t have self-raising/self-rising flour then you need to add 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt to every cup of all-purpose flour. So for this recipe, you would need: 2 cups all-purpose flour, 4 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt.

Is all-purpose flour and self-rising the same?

No!! Self-rising has baking powder and salt mixed within it so by using it, you can omit those ingredients from your recipe. They do not work interchangeably.
