Do you love sandwiches and rolls or pita's with melted cheese? Then this Greek cheese pita is definitely for you!
Mix the flour and yeast together in a mixing bowl and slowly pour in the wet ingredients and sugar or honey. Mix/knead for about 10 minutes into a nice smooth dough.
Add the salt and knead for another 5 minutes or so. Let the dough rise in the mixing bowl for about an hour under a damp tea towel. The dough will start to rise and roughly double in size.
Divide the dough into 6 balls and roll out into nice flat rounds.
(In Greece, pitas are often folded in half instead of being cut open. They are folded around the filling like a wrap, so these can also be larger than supermarket pitas)
Use flour to prevent sticking to the countertop/work surface.
Fry in a hot pan with a little olive oil. Fry one side for about 2 minutes, and the other side for about a minute. Then top half of the pita with the tzatziki cheese and fold it in half. Sprinkle some grated cheese over the top as well and continue baking for a few minutes until the cheese melts. Be generous with the cheese as the pitas are quite large and very fluffy.
