"Posted by request for a pita bread recipe calling for mashed chickpeas. This recipe is a regular bread recipe (bread machine) that calls for hummus, and what would turn it into pita bread is the method of dividing the dough into smaller rounds, rolling out circles of about 6" diameter, and baking on a pizza stone in the bottom of your very hot oven (500 degrees F) for about 5 minutes. Adapted from a recipe found at http://www.globalgourmet.com/food/special/brody/hummus.html Haven't made this myself, but it sounds really good."

"Made this bread by hand rather than the machine as I wanted to use all whole-wheat flour. Subbed 1/4 c. ground flaxseed for 1/4 c. of the total flour. Rolled the dough into pitas--some of the easiest pita rolling I've done! They flattened out evenly and smoothly without sticking. And yum! So good!"
"I loved this bread, the idea of adding hummus to bread is great, toddler DD is eating chickpeas & doesn't even realise it. I used 2 tsp regular yeast, 2 cups bread flour & 1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour, the result was a lovely high but quite dense bread. I enjoyed this toasted with vegemite & so did toddler DD. Also great straight out of the maker with cream cheese. Thanks for posting, will make again!"
