Pita Bread for the Breadmaker

Pita Bread for the Breadmaker created by mersaydees

I found this at the BHG website. The recipe calls for milk but I made them with water and they turned out fine. I also found that while the cooking time given was 5-7 minutes, it took mine an extra 2 minutes to brown.

ingredients

directions

  • Place the ingredients in your breadmaker as follows: milk, oil, salt, sugar, flour and yeast. Or, follow the recommendations of the manufacturer.
  • Select the dough cycle.
  • Once the dough is made let it rest for 10 minutes. I let mine rest in the machine.
  • Divide dough into 10 balls.On a floured surface, roll each ball to approximately a 6 inch circle.
  • Place on a greased cookie sheet(s).
  • Brush each with a little oil and cover and let rise for about 30 minutes or until slightly risen.
  • Once risen lightly oil the top again.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for approximately 5-7 minutes(mine took an extra 2 minutes).
  • The original recipe calls for the pita to be turned half way through baking, but I found this unnecessary.
  • Cool on a rack.
  • Makes ten pita.

    I made this with water because I didn’t have any milk 2.5 cups AP flour 1/2 cup wheat Baked at 450 9 minutes flip 1/2 way through Could have baked longer Split them with a knife since they didn’t puff up Excellent will never buy store bought again

    It worked great! I used milk and flipped them for the last two minutes, mind you I don't have a convection oven, so that worked well. Grape seed oil for the oil as it's a nice neutral taste and a high heat smoke point. This pita totally reminds me of one of my favorite pub's pita when I'd order the hummus and pita. They'd par bake theirs and finish it off to order, then brush it with olive oil. Totally epic! Thanks!!!

    Used water, was perfect!! When I put the water into the bread machine I used very warm water to activate the yeast. I wasn't sure if you have to do that, but all other recipes require it. And it turned out perfect.

    Easy to make and they were very soft. Mine didn't have a pocket to stuff so just ate them on the side. Made half a recipe and served with tahini sauce, falafels and Recipe #54167.

    Very good. I used 1 cup water and 1/4 cup soy milk and sprinkled a little garlic powder on the dough before baking but other then that kept it the same. Delicious and pretty easy if you are hanging around the house anyway.
