Pita bread is one of my all-time favorites, it tastes lovely to use as a wrap for a sandwich or cut into squares to use as a chip alternative for dips. The first time I had pita bread was when I lived in London and there were donner kebab shops on every corner. The kebabs are made from shaved lamb and wrapped inside the delicious warm pita bread with a cucumber-yogurt sauce, they are delicious. The very best thing about pita bread is that it has all the flavor of homemade bread but does not require an oven.



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (plus 1/2 cup for dusting)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dry active yeast
  • 1 cup of warm water


The instructions in this wonderful tutorial by Spices N Flavors on Youtube, are so easy to follow. You just make your dough, then roll it into a tube and cut small circles that will become your pocket bread rounds.

Then, you will roll out the dough, making a round disc-shape, and cook in a skillet or cast iron griddle till done. The pita dough will raise up forming a bubble, which will become your sandwich pocket.

Pita pockets will always hold such wonderful memories for me, and luckily you can buy pita bread in the grocery store these days. The flavor of a pita pocket is always better when you make it from scratch, as with any bread.
