I've tried several pita bread recipes- the breads consistently balloon as they are supposed to in this recipe. Used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Also added 1/2 tsp of granuslated garlic for flavor. These disappear fast around my house. Thanks for a Great Recipe!

Nice and clear pita recipe. I rolled out the dough between parchment paper which made things go quick. Just the right amount for a family of 4 plus leftovers. The 2-3 cups of flour recipes just don't make enough.

Just made this. FABULOUS. First off, the dough is beautiful and easy to work with. I've made so many breads, but I've been kind of intimidated by pita bread....but seriously, this was so easy. It was faster than the 3 hours, and everything happened exactly like the recipe said. Since other reviewers suggested it, I rolled the pitas very thin, and they poofed up PERFECTLY. So nicely, in fact, that my husband actually thought that I had stuffed them with something when he saw them coming out of the oven. Stuffed them with ham and cheese and turkey and tomatoes and onions and lettuce and they were divine. My husband raved about them. I will definitely make these again.

I just made these on a whim tonight. They were delicious and pretty easy. I am not much of a baker but made them no problem..... Well they were a bit mishapen but I think it is due to my inexperience. Thank you for posting.

I am a horrible baker. Make sure you def let them rise the last 15 min. I made the alton brown gyro meat with beef instead of lamb and made mmmmmmmmmm TASTY. Thank you. OH and if you roll them out reaaallyy thin... they turn into lavash.

I'll never be able to buy prepared pita bread again! This was amazing and very, very easy. I used 4 cups of whole wheat with 1 cup of refined flour and it was still soft and puffy. The best ever. Thank you for posting!!

None of mine puffed and I followed the recipe exactly. Still good though.
