This was so easy with perfect results every time. I didn't have any issues at all with the recipe being too sticky as other posters, perhaps their measurements were off a bit? I made it exactly as Najwa instructs and it was perfect. I split up the dough into 18 little balls as Najwa mentioned, and the pitas came out perfect in size and texture. My husband is Egyptian and he can't believe his American wife is making perfect pita bread like he remembers from home. We also use this recipe to make the Egyptian sandwiches that are baked in the pita. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

This recipe is fantastic! They're easy to make and the yield is huge. I substituted the dry milk powder with buttermilk (only dairy I had on hand) and added some garlic powder-- Yummy!! I have a glass top stove so I tried rolling the dough out extra thin, flouring them a little, and popping them directly on the surface. Worked like a dream! Those turned out even better than using an oiled pan. I had so much extra dough I left it in the fridge for a few days, let it come to room temp and wrapped them around organic hotdogs and those turned out excellent as well. (Cook just the dogs for 2 mins in the oven first, put the finished and wrapped ones on a pan, seam side down; flip a few times until brown and voila). There's so much that can be done with this dough, it's very versatile! Thanks a million!!!!!!! :)

These are great! I make them into chips by brushing them with olive oil then I sprinkle them with club house greek seasoning then cut them into triangles and bake ten at 350 degrees until crispy. I enjoy them with my favorite dips!

Very pretty and very good. I used a cast iron pan and olive oil to fry these as was suggested previously. I made 12 instead of 18. They didn't seem too big to me but I'm sure this is just a matter of preference. I love making pita bread and have made it on my grill and in my oven but as far as looks, these were the best. Tastes good, too. Thanks.

This recipe is fantastic! It goes so well with so many dishes. I follow the recipe as seen here, but also add about a tablespoon or so of ghee. I often need to add a little more flour, but that's probably due to my own error rather than the recipe. Anyway, it ends up turning out perfectly every time! Thank you so much for sharing!

This turned out pretty well. I did end up having to add a lot more flour because it was pretty sticky. I love how fast it was though. Next time I will try it with some wheat flour to see if that improves the taste (they tasted fine...just kinda plain).
