My family blows through a lot of pita bread. It dawned on me one day that I should try making pitas. I figured not only could I potentially (1) save a lot of dough (ha, ha – sorry for the pun); (2) create different types of pitas using a variety of flours, maybe even a knock off of the oatmeal & flax ones that I love so much at the deli; and (3) ensure a constant supply of pitas – nothing like needing to run out to the store just for pitas or forgetting to buy them on a shopping trip.
After checking out a number of online recipes and trying a couple of different ones, I settled on this one. Loved the picture-tutorial and simple instructions. Contrary to what others had told me, making pitas (at least with a stand mixer) is nearly a breeze–far from labor intensive. Plus, the kids think that making pitas is really awesome.
I’m hooked and I can’t see going back to store-bought Pitas anytime soon. The best part though: My Picky Eaters LOVE the pitas. Hooray!
Do you make pitas? Have any suggestions or recipes to share with other moms? Please leave a comment below! Psst… if you have an oatmeal & flax pita knockoff recipe, I know someone who would love to try it…. 😉
