Pita

Pita Bread Recipe

My pita’s not so pretty, and I don’t even care. It was good. Really really good. Practice makes perfect and this was my first run. I think next time I may go whole wheat. The first run of any recipe gives you an idea of how it’s gonna work in YOUR kitchen. Every kitchen is different. This post is gonna hafta be short and sweet because I have a ridiculous list of kitchen tasks set before me… my family’s birthday season is in full swing!

crazy list

Add to this list the breakfast & lunch that my children will inevitably need to eat all weekend and it’s gettin a little crazy. So I used this recipe from Annie’s Eats to make the pitas for my chicken gyros the other day. These were simple and turned out soft and bendy, just like I want my pitas to be. The recipe was really similar to mine for pizza dough and the one for italian bread, and if you are willing to wait for the rise and spend a little time kneading, it is totally worth it. My only regret is that I had other things in and out of the oven that day so I did not adhere strictly to the baking instructions… I think the oven temperature wasn’t as hot as I needed it to be and the pizza stone I bake on wasn’t cooperating. Result: ugly but very tasty pita. I’ll definitely be making this again.

That looks like how mine turned out in the early trials. I should blog my pita process because they have really turned out nice. I will have to re-work the recipe for home use because mine makes 120 pitas. My family love pita and the kids love to grab frozen ones out of the oven and just put a bunch of stuff on top and make pita pizzas.

Yes! A pita post would be super! This recipe is really easy and super tasty, but the results aren't a pretty as I would have liked.

I can't wait to make your chicken gyros with homemade pita bread! I plan on making the pitas this evening, doubling the recipe because these look so good just plain! They won't last long in my house!

The pitas were really tasty! That little bit of honey the recipe called for did the trick. I should have double the recipe so I could use these for pita lunch sandwiches all week (would have loved to make a turkey sandwich with one). Now I know for next time. Lemme know how they turned out & thank you ! :)
