1) Take lukewarm water in a small bowl. Dissolve ½ tsp Sugar in it. Then add and dissolve Active Dry Yeast in that water. Cover and let it stand for 10 minutes or until mixture become frothy.
2) In a bowl, take All purpose flour. Add salt and mix together. Add yeast mixture to all purpose flour and mix with hands. Add little more lukewarm water if needed. Knead to smooth and elastic consistency. Use little oil to avoid sticking dough to hands.
3) Apply little oil to the dough to evade from drying and put it in a bowl. Cover the bowl and place it in warm place for about 1 hour to rise.
4) After an hour dough will rise to double in size. Punch down the dough to remove air bubbles.
5) Preheat oven to 450 F. Punch the dough and roll it out to ¼ inch thick circle. Try to gently brush off dry flour on rolled out bread. Try to keep the surface plain and not bumpy, this will help to puff up the bread.
6) Brush little Olive Oil on the rolled out dough. Put it on baking sheet and bake for 3-4 minutes. Then remove from oven, turn the side and bake for 2-3 minutes.
Serve hot Pita bread with chilled Hummus Dip.

1) Yeast should be dissolved in warm water (100-110 degrees F), but not hot water or it will die.
