Herbed Pita Bread - No Fat No Sugar

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by jackandfiona

I have been looking for low fat, low points bread to make at home and found this 1995 book at the library called "The Best Low-Fat, No-Sugar Bread Machine Cookbook Ever" by Madge Rosenberg. Per serving it is 133 calories, .7gm Fat, 0 mg Cholesterol, 4% Calories from Fat. These turned out just great - like the real thing. Much cheaper than buying them.

great flavor! i could only find spelt whole wheat flour, used more of that & less of the white flour. i'm not sure what i did wrong, could have been the flours or my bread machine (1st time i've used the dough cycle), but there didn't seem to be enough dough, i got 2 6" pitas & 4 4" pitas, they cooked waaay faster, thus they were pretty hard & nothing you could slice open (i used them for gyros so it wasn't necessary anyhow). maybe they weren't thick enough? maybe the C°/F° chart i used was off? but 5 stars for the wonderful flavor, i'll try them again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add all ingredients in the order suggested by your bread machine manual and process on the dough cycle according to the manufacturers instructions.
  2. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.
  3. At the end of the dough cycle divide the dough into 8 equal pieces.
  4. On a floured board with floured fingers, press each piece into a circle.
  5. Use a floured rolling pin to roll each into a very think 6 inch circle. Do not roll more than absolutely necessary, or they will not puff up.
  6. Place on non stick baking sheets.
  8. Immediately bake until each pita puffs up and browns, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  9. Preparation time will depend on the length of your dough cycle in your bread machine, plus rolling time.
  10. Turn over half way through cooking, to get a bit of colour on both sides.
