1. Mix with a wooden spoon, the flour & salt in a large bowl. Add water

sticky and is smooth.

2. Knead till smooth & elastic on a well floured board - 5 minutes.

3. Shape the dough into a rectangle, and divide into 12 smooth balls. Cover
with sliighly damp towels & let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

4 . Gently press each ball flat, keeping round shape. With floured work
surface & rolling pin, roll each round to a 6 to 7 inch circle, paper thin.
Cover with a slighly damp towel.

5. Lightly oil a griddle or large skillet & warm over medium high heat
until hot. Gently stretch each round as thin as possible without holes as
you place it on the griddle. Cook until browned, bubbly spots appear on the
bottom, about 1 1/2 minutes; turn and brown the other side. Remove from the
pan and immediately wrap in a clean towel until cool enough to handle.
Serve warm or at room temp.

6. Repeat with all. Pan will have to be re-oiled after 3-4. Do not add
too much oil or the pitas will be soggy and heavy.

The inquiry about Lebanese flat bread sent me back to the local library,
where I remembered seeing a book that might be of interest.
