Making pita at home is simple and very tasty. I like that I could make the pitas smaller than the ones at the grocery. Watching them bake and puff up was really amazing. I found this recipe at www.bread-maker.net.
- Add ingredients to the bread pan as listed - select the dough cycle and start. After the cycle is complete, remove the dough, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 450°F
- Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and shape each into a smooth ball - lightly flour the bread board and roll each ball into a 4 inch circle. Cover the circles and let them rise for about 30 minutes.
- Place 4 dough circles on a lightly greased baking sheet. On middle rack, bake for 4 minutes, turn the dough and bake for another 3 minutes or until completely puffed and slightly brown.
- Cool on a rack, and repeat with the remaining dough circles. For storage, while still warm, puncture at seam and press gently to release air and flatten - when cool, stack and place in plastic storage bag.
