Thermomix Pita Bread

5 from 2 votes
This super simple Thermomix Pita Bread recipe is ready in under 1 hour from start to finish. Ideal for dipping and snacking with hummus or as a wrap. This is seriously one of the quickest and easiest recipes to make and far better than any of the shop bought stuff. Try it when you are having friends around and you need a quick snack for everyone. You can serve it with hummus or any other dip of your choice. "Pita bread and hummus is my favourite childhood snack" (Jesse) Jesse is absolutely fanatical about pita bread. I think since I met him, I have never seen a day where we didn't have pita bread and hummus at home. He loves it at lunch time, dinner time and, really, any other time of the day. When I finally made him homemade pita bread, he could not stop eating it. We brought it over to his family and the pita bread was gone within minutes. Of course, there was plenty of different flavoured hummus on the table to dip. Thermomix pita bread is so simple and I cannot believe I actually made this within 1 hour from start to finish, including proofing, baking time and cleaning. You don't have to add any seeds if you don't want to but I liked the little texture and flavour it added to them.

Ingredients

Thermomix Pita Bread:

  • 250 g plain flour
  • 1 sachet 7g dry active yeast
  • 20 g nigella or onion seeds
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 160 ml lukewarm water
  • 2 tsp olive oil

Instructions

  1. Add water and yeast to the Thermomix bowl and combine on setting 1 Min./Speed 2.
  2. If you do not have a Thermomix, add yeast and water to a small mixing bowl and stir until combined.
  3. Add flour, olive oil, nigella or onion seeds and salt (in this order!) to the mixing bowl and knead until smooth on setting 2 Min./.
  4. If you do not have a Thermomix, put the yeast-water mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add the flour, olive oil, nigella or onion seeds and salt (in this order!) and knead until you have a smooth dough. This may take up to 10 minutes.
  5. Place the dough on a floured worktop and cover with a tea towel. Leave to rise until doubled in size.
  6. Preheat the oven to 250°C and place a large baking tray in the oven to heat up.
  7. When the dough has risen, cut it in 4-6 equal pieces. Roll out to an oval and place on a piece of greaseproof paper, that fits the size of the tray in the oven. You may need to do this in two rounds. Remove the tray from the oven and place the paper with the oval pita breads on there.
  8. Bake for 5-10 minutes, until the pita breads just start to colour. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack and cover with a tea towel. Repeat with the rest, if you have to bake in two batches. Enjoy with Hummus or any other dip of your choice. They are also ideal as wrap pockets for lamb kofta or souvlaki.

    Hi Sophia, thanks for all your recipes. This pita bread is simply gorgeous, we all love it! If I would like to double the amount of dough, would I have to double kneading time or keep it the same? Thanks Helen

      Hi Helen, I’m so glad to hear you like it. The kneading time will stay the same. If you see that the dough is not smooth enough after that, increase by another 30 seconds. That should be enough. Enjoy 🙂 sophia

    Hi Sophia,
    The recipe states plain flour. Do you mean normal plain flour, or should it be bread flour??

    • Weehooey A Weehooey A on April 23, 2018 at 7:26 am

      Normal plain flour is good but you can also go for bread flour.

    Hi, how many grams of normal yeast would you use to substitute for 7g dried?

    • Sophia H Sophia H on March 11, 2019 at 8:41 am

      I would go for 15g 🙂

    Use bread flour has more gluten 12/14%

    • Sophia H Sophia H on April 15, 2019 at 9:09 pm

      Yes you can certainly do that 🙂

    Absolutely delicious, I can’t believe how easy they are! Desperately trying to cut down on my plastic use so I’m thrilled that I can make my own now for my children’s lunchboxes. Quick question, can they be frozen once cooked?
