How to cook
Crumble the yeast in the cool water, add the sugar, 1 tbsp flour and stir well. Cover and once the yeast effervesces add the water and egg white. Make a well in the flour, add the salt and liquid mixture in it.
Knead a nonstick dough, transfer to a greased container, cover and wait for it to rise. Cut the risen dough in 2 and use oiled hands to shape 2 long wicks.
Cut each of them into 3 lengthwise and weave them together into 2 weaves. Put them in an oiled tray and smear with the egg yolk beaten with a little milk. Put the pita to bake in a preheated 392°F (200 °C) oven on the lower element only.
Once it's risen, lower heat to 356°F (180 °C) and turn upper element on as well. Bake until ready.
