Directions ‘Dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water.**Combine the all-purpose flour, pastry flour and salt in a bowl. Stir in the yeast mixture and applesauce and knead. Dough shouldn”t be sticky, but it shouldn”t be dry either. If too sticky add 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour till you get the right consistency. If too dry, add 1 tablespoons of water at a time till you get the right consistency.**Roll out into a rope and cut into 8 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and roll out till it”s anywhere from a 6 to 8 inch circle**There are two ways to cook pita bread. The flavor is a bit different with both. To Bake Pita: Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C) and put a pita on a wire cake rack. Toss in the rack and cook for 3 minutes or until the bread stops puffing up. When you take it out, smash down the pita (Careful, its hot!) and quickly put it in a plastic freezer bag. To Fry Pita: Heat olive oil in a skillet over high heat. When almost smoking, place a pita in the pan and cook for a few minutes on each side, till brown spots begin to appear. It should look something like a tortilla when you”re done. Put in a plastic bag once it has cooled a bit.**’
