Method

 
Sift the cake flour, salt and sugar together and add the instant yeast. Mix well. Add the oil and just enough water to make a soft, manageable dough.
Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Cover and leave in a warm place to rise until doubled in bulk. Knead down and divide the dough into 16 equal portions. Shape each portion into a ball and roll out into a circle about 5 mm thick.

Place on greased baking sheets, cover lightly and leave in a warm place to rise for 15 to 20 minutes.
Bake for about 8 minutes at 200 ºC (400 ºF) or until the pitas have risen and are pale brown. Cool on a wire rack and sift a little cake flour over them.
