How do you make any bread better? Make it sourdough! Adding sourdough starter to the pita bread dough results in fresh, tasty flatbread that has that tangy sourdough taste. This pairs perfectly with falafel, plant-based sabich, or it can be used to make sourdough pita pizzas.

Sourdough Pita Bread [Vegan]


  • 1 cup active sourdough starter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Oil a separate bowl and roll the dough ball around so that it is coated with oil. Cover loosely with a clean towel and let rise in a warm place four about 4 hours.
  2. Reshape into a big ball and let sit in the refrigerator for about 5 days.
  3. Divide the dough into eight equal portions, roll them into balls, and eventually into flat pancakes, an 1/8-inch or so thick. Bake each of them on a hot cast iron surface at 475°F. for about 2 minutes, then flip with a spatula and cook for another minute.  If you attempt to flip them with tongs, you’re likely to puncture and deflate the bread.





Fresh, original, delicious vegan food that can be made while balancing the demands of a busy lifestyle. I'm a full-time teacher, father, and ultra-runner obsessed with vegan food, recipe development, and photography. I write my blog to share food-related experiences while living as an expatriate in Nicaragua. I work really hard to produce the most original, delicious vegan food that I can while balancing the demands of a busy lifestyle. Veganism is a way of life that demands exposure!
