Pita Bread Recipe


I found another great recipe on sparkpeople.com. This is for baked homemade pita breads. I just had one of these with a 100 calorie pack of Wholly Gucamole and one cup of Veggistrone Veggie soup. So. Darn. Good.

This recipe was submitted by YCROZIER and the real title is Farmgirl’s Pita Bread After Bernard Clayton. I believe it originated here at Farmgirl Fare – just want to give credit where it’s due because these are awesome. YCROZIER says that her kids will not eat store-bought pitas anymore. I can see why!

Some reviewers experimented with flours, but I kept to the recipe by using a hearty whole wheat and white flours in the quantities suggested.

As you can see, I didn’t cut my foil neatly, I just cut big pieces and baked two at time. Here they are in the 500 degree oven, that’s so hot the oven started cleaning itself. The fire alarm went off from the smoke!


Look at the way these puff up. They smelled so good right out of the oven – almost pie-like!

    I have not had any luck making homemade bread with yeast. Maybe I am not doing it right. But this looks like a delicious pita bread. I like pita bread and this has whole wheat flour making it healthier. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Glad to hear that your pitas turned out!

    I think you’re right, once you’ve had this kind of thing homemade it’s next to impossible to enjoy store bought. These look/sound really good. :)

    This recipe looks so easy. I’m going to have to give them a try. I’m not that great of a baker, so we’ll see how they turn out.

    I love pita breads! These look very good and wholesome! I like the addition of the olive oil! I would love to make these at home so I don’t have to buy the authentic style ones (that are a bit expensive) at the store! They would be great for all the times I wanted a sandwich or falafel! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I have never made any kind of home made breads before, but these look good. My kids would really like these, might have to give it a try 😉

    Thanks for this recipe. I am an avid breadmaker, but I haven’t yet delved into Pita. I typically make a french baguette that I bake in Rachel Ray pans into a perfect loaf of bread….few ingredients and perfect. However, Pita has less density I think!

    My family enjoys pita bread and I do like it for lunch with hummus and vegetables. I never thought to try to make it myself, but It would be nice to give it a shot.

    so this is how they do it!!! I used to grind my own flour and make flatbread – hard on the teeth! homemade pita sound so much better!!! stoke up that oven!

  9. Anne says

    As much as I love pita, I’ve never made my own. This recipe looks like I could adapt it to make the dough in my bread machine before baking the pitas in the oven. Thanks!

    I’ve never made bread myself but this seems simple enough. I promised myself I would start making bread at home this year. It’s so much healthier and the taste is so better! Thank you.

    These look goood but goodness 500 degrees I will be trying these when the weather is cooler :) I like pita bread and yours turned out nicely.

    Awesome! Now I don’t have to buy them at the store anymore. Love pita bread with my stir fry! Like Olga’s!

  13. Beth R says

    I have been looking for a pita bread recipe. My son’s love it but it gets so expensive and fresh is so much better

  14. Rosie says

    I’ve been making my own wrap and tortilla shells, I hadn’t thought of trying pitas – now I know the secret of how they are made and want to try this – they look yummy!

    Yes I’m another who never thought about making my own pita bread. I usually only buy it when it’s on sale but really enjoy it and love how thin it is.
