    Roll the dough into rounds 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick using a little bench flour if the dough is sticky. If the dough pulls back and doesn’t hold the shape, cover it and let it sit for another 10 minutes before rolling it again.

    Lightly brush or spray the pita dough rounds with oil. Place 2 to 4 pitas directly on the preheated cast iron and cook for 3 to 4 minutes with the lid closed.
