I have been trying to find out the best pita bread recipe. This one takes at least 2 days to complete the product.
Using Peter Reinhart’s book. 1 day to prepare the soaker and biga and the next day to complete with the final dough.
I tried mine with dark rye flour. A healthier product.
After abt 1 plus min, the dough in the oven started to rise from the sides first.
Then it takes about 1 1/2 mins to rise to its fullest. Wait for another 1/2 min to complete. All in all it takes 3 mins. This is the 1st time doing it in this oven, so I prepare to send my product into the oven 1 by 1.
Taking a look inside ….
…it’s soft and spongy. Although the top layer as thin as 3 sheets of paper together, but when you hold the pita, your hands can feel the sponginess of the bread.
Looking at the cross-section…
