I am guessing here, but shouldn't 2 read:

2. Mix the flour with the salt and olive oil in a big bowl, and add the fermented yeast.

I think that is what confused Mark.

Absolutely tasty. The directions were clear and accurate, and if you have some experience in making breads, you'll find out that this is a relatively easy bread recipe.

Making pita bread isn't so easy, and you really need to take it seriously in order to succeed. I added one 1 more tsp salt for tempting the kids.

You need patience and the right touch to succeed in making breads, and pita bread is no exception. The pitas were very tasty at first, but later even after being in the freezer they kind of lost their magic.

I always wanted to make pita bread, but I wasn't sure I'll succeed. Anyway, this recipe was clear and the pita bread came out very tasty. The shelf life is pretty short compare to ordinary pita, but I guess this is a plausible price for your own made pita bread.
