Pita Bread


Freshly Made Pita Bread

This is a great recipe for pita bread for dipping in freshly made hummus! Yesterday I made this for my kids’ afternoon snack, and they devoured it. I found this recipe in the recipe booklet that came with my bread maker. Because this recipe uses a bread maker, it’s fairly simple to make.

Pita Bread



  1. Put ingredients in bread maker according to manufacturers instructions. Set to dough setting.
  2. When bread maker is done, place dough onto lightly floured surface. Divide into 10 pieces and shape each piece into a smooth ball.
  3. Place 5 balls on a large baking sheet. Place the remaining 5 balls on another baking sheet. Let rise about 20 minutes. With fingertips flatten each ball into a 6 inch circle.
  4. Bake at 500 degrees for 5 minutes until puffed and tops begin to brown. Note: My oven only heats up to 450 degrees, so I bake them at 450 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes. Check them every 5 minutes to make sure they do not burn.
  5. Cut in half to form 2 pockets or cut into wedges for dipping in hummus. Makes 20 pita pockets.
