    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…


  1. Tip the flours into a food processor. Add the yeast, sugar and 1tsp salt, then mix well. Pour in 350ml warm water and the oil, then process to a soft dough. Mix for 1 min, then leave until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  2. Pulse the dough a couple of times just to knock out the air, then tip onto a floured surface. Cut the dough in half and roll out one half to a rectangle about 20 x 40cm. Trim the edges using a large sharp knife, then cut into eight 10cm squares. Line a large tray or two baking sheets with non-stick paper and arrange the bread rectangles over the tray in one layer. Repeat with the other half of the dough. Leave in a warm place for about 30 mins until the dough is just starting to rise.

  3. Place bread directly onto the BBQ racks and cook for a couple of mins until they puff up, then flip over and cook on the other side. Tip into a basket and serve with the dips.

These were awesome. More like little pittas (I'd always wondered how to make pitta bread!). Had them with cheese, hummus and other dips. My friends loved them!

These sound just the job to go with our falafel and salad. But as it's winter I won't be cooking these on BBQ racks, so would cooking them in a dry hot pan on the hob or in a hot oven directly on the shelf work instead?

Can I prep dough hours in advance, how would I store it?

Thanks for your question. You can prepare up to the end of step one. Pop it in an oiled bowl, cover with cling film and store in a cool place for a few hours until you're ready to use it. You can knock the air out by hand.

Does it really want 2x 7g packs of easy blend yeast?!?!? That's a lot of yeast. Marie
