Yield: 8 large pitas

    Yum! I was just at a Lebanese restaurant and they served homemade pita with a Zaat’ar olive oil. I’ve been dying to make pita bread ever since!

    I’ve been wanting to make whole wheat pita for a LONG time! I like making falafel so much that one of the first recipes on my blog was the baked falafel by Ellie Krieger actually.

    I honestly can’t wait to make these! I can be a bit imprecise when it comes to rolling out, but I suppose it doesn’t really matter if my pitas end up oblong-shaped!

    Making pita bread is on my baking project list. Yours are just irresistible! The dry, flat, dense pita bread from the store are worlds apart from your stellar creations!

    Such a gorgeous pic Tessa! I haven’t made pita bread in forever, I’m definitely putting this on my must-try list (aka Pinterest) 🙂

    This looks so good! I made homemade pita chips and homemade hummus this weekend, but I didn’t make the pita from scratch! I’m dying to make this and spread it with some tzaziki and gyros. Yum!

    I love pita. It is so delicious and versitile. You can dip it, stuff it, make chips out of it. I love that you made a whole wheat version and it is so easy. Thanks for the recipe

    Hello! I stumbled upon your blog as I was exploring some of the blogs my own blog’s readers follow, and I just loved this post. I’ve been meaning to try my hand at homemade pita and a whole wheat recipe would be even better. I think my readers would really love it, too! I’d like to invite you to participate in my blog’s link-up party to celebrate the end of National Nutrition Month – feel free to check it out and share one of the delicious, healthy recipes you’ve been enjoying this past month!

    Hi Tessa,
    I made these today and they were really good; however, only two pitas puffed up and the rest were flat. I baked them on a stone and the one to the left and back of the stone was the only one that puffed up. I have no idea why! What did I do wrong or what should I have done differently?
