Spelt pita bread

Spelt pita bread

Spelt pita bread is a great accompaniment to a Mediterranean inspired lunch or dinner. It is easy to make, contains minimal ingredients and is lower in gluten than traditional store-bought pita.

We recommend serving this spelt pita bread with hummus, our spicy walnut and beetroot dip, creamy avo dip, olive tapenade, grilled halloumi, falafel and/or tabouli salad. Mezze plate sorted!

Serves 4


1 1/2 cups spelt flour
1 tsp granulated yeast
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup warm water


  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  2. Then add olive oil and warm water, mix until well combined.
  3. Knead the dough for a few minutes or until elastic.
  4. Return the dough to mixing bowl, cover and place in the fridge for approximately 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
  6. Divide the mixture into 4 small balls.
  7. Using a floured rolling pin, roll each pita flat (add a little extra flour to the rolling board if the mixture starts to stick).
  8. Place in the oven and bake for 5 minutes (we bake two at a time).
  9. To grill, place in a griddle for approx. 1 minute.
  10. Serve warm with your choice of dip, falafel, grilled halloumi and/or tabouli.
