    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!

    I could smell the warm pita bread- I am a big fan of it but never made at home. I have come to find baking bread to be therapeutic lately- saving this one πŸ™‚

    I love whole wheat pitas, and they’re so great homemade! I’ve never made them myself, but I’ve had them at restaurants. I need to get better about making homemade bread, so I’ll add this to my list!

    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!

    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!

    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?
