1 ¼ cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
3- 3 ½ cups flour
Dissolve yeast in water for about 5 minutes in the bowl of an electric mixer. Add salt and 1 ½ cups flour and with the dough hook, beat to make a batter. Add additional flour until a rough, shaggy mass is formed. Knead 8 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Add more flour if it is too sticky.
And as it is mixing up, what "shaggy dough" looks like
Flip your round pita upside down on cookie sheets or pizza pans, whatever you can find. Put them in the oven and watch for the first 5 minutes. OK, you don't HAVE to watch them, but it's a kick to watch them puff up like balloons!!
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
