      Really simple recipe for a nice soft pita. I only had a couple that puffed enough to make a pocket, but I think that was because I made them too big. But, they worked great anyway for how I wanted to serve them. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      These were delicious pita Random Rachel. I scaled down the recipe for only two people, it worked really well. The pita were easy to make. I did have a little difficulty with shaping, I will improve with practise. The pita were wonderful served with Souvlaki, Avocado Tzatziki and Greek Tomato Salad.

      Very easy to make. I did cut recipe in half, with no problems. Next time i am going to try a little whole wheat flour for some of the all-purpose flour. Served with lamb burgers and trimmings. Made for ZWT 9.
