2.5mlsp (1/2 tsp) salt

1. Combine the Loprofin Mix, yeast and salt in a large bowl, add oil and water, beat for 1 minute using an electric mixer (or 3 – 4 minutes with a wooden spoon) until the batter is smooth and glossy.
2. Cover the bowl with cling film and put in a warm place to rise, until almost doubled in size - for approximately 20 minutes.
3. Preheat a baking tray, under a hot grill.
4. Remove the cling film from the bowl and beat the dough for 1 minute, until smooth, mark into 6 portions.
5. Lay a piece of cling film on a work surface and brush lightly with oil, spoon a portion of dough into the centre. Dust the palm of one hand with Loprofin Mix and gently press the dough into a thin oval approximately 17.5cm x 12.5cm (7 x 5inch).
6. Oil the hot baking tray and using the cling film to assist you, carefully transfer the dough onto the tray. Grill for 1 - 2 minutes, until just starting to colour, turn the Pitta over and grill for a further 1 - 2 minutes.
7. Repeat the shaping and cooking with remaining dough.
