Pitta bread

  1. Put all the ingredients, except water, into the mixer’s bowl. Beat with the hook attachment.

  2. While beating, add water and keep beating for 5-7 minutes, until we have a flexible dough.

  3. Knead the dough and make a ball. Wrap with a plastic wrap and put in fridge, for 12 hours to rest.

  4. After 12 hours, divide the dough in 8-10 equal pieces and roll out, until it is very thick. Fry in a frying pan over medium to high heat, until golden. Set aside.

  5. Cover with plastic wrap and put in fridge for 12 hours. Mix once.

  6. Put pancettas on the oven rack and a baking pan below it. Baste with any liquid left and season with salt.
