homemade pita

The last time I bought some pita, my husband told me we should have this more often. I wondered how hard it could be to make pita myself. Today I tried it and was pleased with the results. In fact we ended up starting our lunch shortly after 11, when the hot pockets were pulled out of the oven.

I found the recipe at The Fresh Loaf and made it with one cup whole wheat and two cups white flour. I baked them at 425 degrees for four to five minutes per batch (a little hotter and longer than the recipe stated). It seemed that a minute or so between batches to allow the oven and stone to heat back up made for better puffing during baking.

  1. Isn't it fun to try new things from scratch? This Christmas we made 200 tamales and oh what a project. We then gave them away for Christmas gifts…though they were not half as good as those the Hispanic ladies make at our church. Next year? Buy them from the ladies!
