Greek pita – how to prepare the tasty flat bread

Greek pita is one of the treasures, that I discovered during my time in Greece. I fell in love with the full flavour of the fried, crispy bread that is traditionally served with starters such as fava or fried eggplants. It is also a little lifesaver whenever I expect guests, since it is really quick and easy to prepare, inexpensive and delicious with bread-spreads, grilled veggies or a fresh salad. The base for the recipe is my foolproof pizza dough. Check the recipe here!



  • foolproof pizza dough
  • oregano
  • salt
  • one
  • lemon
  • olive oil


Prepare the pizza dough and let it raise for at least 20 minutes. Divide it into little balls. Every ball should have the size of a plum. Flatten the dough-balls out with a rolling-pin or whatever you find in your minimalist kitchen, in your tent, car or whatever you call your home. Put some oil in a flat frying pan and heat it up. The oil should be really hot! If it is too cold, the dough is gonna be soft and too oily after frying. Put the dough in the pan and fry it from both sides. With the right temperature you need less than a minute for each side. Sprinkle the fried pita (pites is the plural by the way) with oregano, salt and some lemon juice. Enjoy them hot with your favourite side-dishes! If you got dough left overs, either freeze them or sprinkle them with water and store them in a sealed container in your fridge! Kali orexi!fava
