Our mission is to upset the world of fitness food. One of the ways we do that is by enriching all kinds of foods with more protein. Protein makes you feel full for longer and provides your muscles with vital building blocks for maintenance or growth. That’s why you simply must try our recipe for a higher-protein, fluffy pita bread. It’s not nearly as complicated as you may think!


  • Ingredients:
    150 ml water, 5 g fresh yeast, 10 g raw sugar
    Mix the warm water, yeast, and sugar in a large bowl.
  • Ingredients:
    220 g flour, 30 g , 5 g salt
    Add the flour and Vegan Protein and mix. Transfer the dough to a floured working surface. Add salt. Knead for about 7 minutes until it turns into a smooth dough.
  • Roll the dough into a ball, put back into the bowl, and cover with a dish towel. Let the dough rest for 1 hour to rise.
  • Divide the dough into 6 even balls. Cover again and let rest for another 20 minutes.
  • Dust your working surface with flour. With a rolling pin, roll each ball out to about a half-centimeter thickness.
  • Heat the oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat. Put one pita bread into the pan. Flip after 10 seconds.
  • Cook on the other side for 10 seconds, then flip again. Continue to cook for 10 seconds per side until the pita bread starts to puff up. It should take 3-4 minutes for each pita.
  • Put the finished pitas onto a plate. Cover with a clean dish towel to keep warm and soft until they are ready to serve.
  • To fill your pita bread, simply slice into the edge of it. It should open up like a pocket.
  • Enjoy!

What belongs in a pita?
