Pita Bread (2 way)

Bread is one of those things that are quite life changing. I mean it is pretty much the most important base of our daily consumption, nobody and nothing can live withoutΒ it, and whenever you manage to create or make your own bread you just feel like a rock star πŸ˜„

Everyone who knows me or follows my blog knows my deep love for all bread. I spent nearly a whole year making and remaking all types of bread until I felt like I’ve perfected all the bread bases and feel confident enough to know how to make fresh bread from scratch and without a stand mixer to knead ;)πŸ˜„

These pitas were no exception. This was actually one of those recipes that I tried once and never looked back. I never tried another one and don’t think I will because this one is fabulous! πŸ™‚

I made these in 2 different ways. Half in the oven, all baked and puffy, and half in a non stick pan on the stove top. I loved both of them so I just make whatever way is convenient at the time πŸ˜„

These pitas are so easy and delicious, they’re sure to be a staple in your bread pantry πŸ˜„

  1. Ahh, the perfect recipe I have been looking for. Thank you! I would have never thought my favourite pita would be so easy to make. Isn’t it amazing how many things you can make with a flour-water and sometimes yeast variation!? πŸ˜€
