Ingredients

  • 500g packet Juvela Gluten-Free Fibre Mix
  • 1 sachet dried yeast (supplied with Mix)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 250ml warm water
  • Method

    1. Before you start, preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7
    2. For the pittas, place the Fibre Mix in a large bowl and stir in the yeast making sure it is evenly distributed.
    3. Stir in the oil and sufficient water to form a soft but not sticky dough.
    4. Knead the dough until smooth on a surface lightly dusted with Mix.
    5. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces, cover and allow to stand for approx. 40 mins.
    6. Re-knead each piece and then roll out thinly into an oval shape.
    7. Place on a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven for 7-8 minutes until golden.
    8. Stack in a polythene bag whilst still warm to ensure the pittas stay soft as they cool.
