Combine ingredients and knead dough.

In a large bowl, use a whisk to combine the four-cup sifted all-purpose flour, one teaspoon of active dry yeast, one teaspoon of salt, two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 1.5 cups of warm water. Once the ingredients are combined, move your dough to a lightly floured surface. Knead for 8 minutes until it is soft and bounces back when poked with your finger.

Let the dough rise for an hour or so.

Once your dough is finished kneading, place it in an oiled bowl and allow it to rise. Cover the bowl with a damp kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let the dough rise for an hour or until it has doubled in size. This should take about 60 minutes. Then remove the dough from the bowl and divide it into 8 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball, cover them lightly with a kitchen towel, and let them rest for 10 to 15 minutes.

Roll out small circles to desired size and thickness.

Once the doughballs have rested, take one ball and roll it out on a lightly floured surface. Keep rolling until the dough reaches your desired size and thickness for crispy pita bread. You want to make sure that the edges are even and that the dough does not tear or break apart. Then set aside the rolled out dough and repeat this step for the other seven pieces of dough.

Bake for 10 minutes at 350°F or until golden brown.

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Place the rolled out pita dough on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Make sure you check the underside of the pita bread for a deep golden brown color; if not, turn it over and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until done. When finished, remove from oven and let cool before serving.

Enjoy your homemade pita bread!
