Yeast-Free Life - Is Pita Bread Okay?

By Matt Bournston

Have you recently started on a yeast free diet? Or are you thinking of starting on one? Whichever of those applies to you, you're probably wondering about various foods and whether or not they are okay to eat on a yeast free diet. Many people wonder about pita bread, since pita bread doesn't appear to rise up quite like normal bread does. So the question is: does it contain yeast?

Well, the answer is, yes, normal pita bread does in fact contain yeast. However, you need not despair, as there are alternative pita breads that you can buy that are free from it, or you can indeed make your own. Here is a great recipe for you to try.

What You Will Need:

* 1 tbsp Olive Oil

* 1 cup soy flour

* 1 cup unbleached white flour

* 1 1/2 cups distilled or purified water

* Half a teaspoon of baking powder

* Dash of sea salt

Note: if you are also using a gluten free flour, you should also add an egg into the mixture in order to bind it all together.

How to Make the Pita Bread

1. Mix together the olive oil, water and the salt. Add in the flour and baking powder, then mix until smooth like a pancake mixture.

2. Rub the inside of the frying pan with an oily paper towel, then let the pan sit for about ten minutes.

3. Place the frying pan on a hob at medium-low heat, and wait about 3 minutes before pouring the batter into the middle of the pan.

4. Tilt the pan in a circular motion until a good thickness of the batter mixture covers the bottom.

5. Once the top of the mixture has gone dry, flip it over and cook the other side. This should take about a minute on each side.

6. Eat.

I hope you found this yeast free pita bread recipe useful.
