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!

    Hmmm, I have never even thought about making my own Pita bread before, but I think I might give this a try. I use pita bread a lot and I like the idea of making my own.

    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. :)

    Never thought to make them myself, but I think I’m gonna have to do that now. I love them!

    This looks great! I don’t think I ever made pita bread. Got to try making them! :)

    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!

    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.

    Looks good. I used to try to make my own wrap but it turned out to be like chips.

    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!

  22. 22

    This looks delicious I love any kind of bread. I’ve never tried making my own pita bread.

  23. 23

    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!

  24. 24

    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.
