Vegan Pita Bread

This delightful Vegan Pita Bread recipe is cozy in its simplicity and flavor. The soft and pillowy texture pays tribute to fantastic plant-based baking!

Vegan Pita Bread


  • 3 ½ cups flour (plus a little for kneading)
  • 1 ½ cups lukewarm water
  • 1 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Sunwarrior Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


In a bowl mix the water with sugar and yeast and let stand for 5-10 minutes until yeast blooms and becomes frothy.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and sea salt. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the activated yeast mixture and olive oil.

Mix the ingredients until a dough forms.

Lightly flour a clean surface and transfer the dough onto it. Knead the dough for about 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Add more flour if necessary to prevent sticking.

Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.

Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C). If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven to heat up.

Punch down the risen dough and divide it into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball.

On a floured surface, roll each ball into a circle about 6-7 inches  in diameter.

Place the rolled dough circles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let them rise for another 15-20 minutes.

If using a pizza stone, transfer the rolled dough onto the hot stone. Otherwise, bake on the baking sheet.

Bake for 5-7 minutes or until the pitas puff up and the edges are golden brown.

Allow the pita bread to cool on a wire rack.

Now your vegan pita bread is ready to be enjoyed! Serve it with your favorite hummus, falafel, or stuffed with fresh veggies and vegan tzatziki sauce.
