    javagirl81's Note:

    As a kid, I remember my Mom always keeping a package of these around. They make a great substitution for your plain old sliced bread, especially when you're feeling a little creative! Try stuffing them with tuna salad, lettuce and tomato and a few pickle slices....YUM! Start them in the morning, and by lunch, you'll be all ready to go!

      I'm lways looking for a great pita bread recipe.. I'm done looking. This is by far best I've made to date. Every single pita puffed up! Perfect pockets! I made the recipe easier and let my bread machine do most of the work. I did need to add extra water. That was no big deal. LOVE this recipe. Thanks. :)

      I've tried a lot of pita recipes but this is the first I've had any luck with! The dough was easy to roll out and cooked up with nice big pockets. I allowed it to rise till it doubled in size, punched it down and let it come up again and then rolled out the individual pitas. This will be by go-to recipe from now on, thanks!

      It was my first time making Pita, and they turned out wonderful :) (I've already made them a second time, this time switching out one cup of white flour for one of whole wheat, since I had it on hand. It still turned out wonderful)
