Making pita bread/chips

I’m off to the Rose Festival Parade tomorrow, and I’m bringing along Hummus and Pita Bread. I’m making my own pita bread from my new favorite cookbook Make the Bread, Buy the Butter.    It’s so exciting!

Pita balls ready to roll.

Pita balls rolled and ready for the very hot pizza stone (pita stone?)

Finished pitas.  I think my stone was hot enough that I needn’t have baked them for very long.  In the recipe, she recommends eight minutes.  My first batch, baked for that long, were nearly burnt. I  kept reducing the time baked, but they all went from dough, passed quickly through bread and into chip form.  The author mentions she can’t get hers to puff, but all of mine did. I’ll try again next time with very little cooking time and see what results they give.  These were very, very good.

  1. Those look pretty fantastic to me! Love that you want with 'house made' items for your menu! Very lovely. Wish I could have been there to enjoy the crunch!
