Pan Cooked Pita Bread – Pocket Flatbread

By NirL

In one of my previous instructables, I made hummus, and many people asked me to share my pita bread recipe. So, long overdue, in this instructable I’ll show you how to make your own pita bread 🙂 Pita bread is a pocket-flatbread, and it is very common in many middle-eastern countries and here in Israel. We often eat pita when we BBQ (we put meat in it), with hummus, or as sandwich. And, in the spirit of the bread-and-soup contest, pitas are often eaten along a thick soup or a gravy. I like eating it with tomato soup or shakshouka.

Pita bread is delicious and, while I make it with all-purpose flour, you can use whatever flour you like! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to reach out!
