Mezes: Appetizers, Pasta/ Dough ~Traditional Pita Bread Recipe~ May 17, 2017 ~Traditional Pita Bread Recipe~ Ingredients: 1 1/8 cup warm water 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon sea salt 1.5 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon clover honey 1.5 teaspoon active dry yeast Bread maker Optional: You can add any herbs or spices to this recipe for additional flavor. Directions: Place all ingredients into the bread machine. Make sure to select Dough setting and then start. Do not open the bread machine while dough is rising. Place dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently roll and stretch the dough into a 12 inch rope. With a sharp knife, divide the dough into 10 pieces. Roll each piece into a small ball. With your hand or rolling-pin, make each ball into a 7 inch circle. Place the dough onto a baking sheet, and cover with a towel. Let the pita rise about 30 minutes or until puffy. Preheat the oven to 450 D or 230 C. Place 4 pitas on a wire cake rack in the oven. Bake pitas until puffed and lightly golden brown on top. Remove from oven and place the cooled pita in a sealed bag to store. I like to drizzle fresh lemon and olive oil over the top of the pitas just before I remove them out of the oven.

Kouzounas Kitchen June 25, 2014 at 11:03 am Yes and I always wanted to make pita bread and I had tried a recipe in the past and it didn’t turn out well.

Thank you for trying out my recipe and I’m so happy you and the family enjoyed it! 🙂 Loading... keraoregan June 29, 2014 at 2:18 am Reply Wow, have just been sent here from Elaine’s blog! These look delicious! I want to try them out as well but have to make them gluten free. Do you have any idea what gluten free flour(s) would be best to get them right? If not, no problem- I’ll just have to experiment! Just thought I would ask in case! 😉 Loading... Kouzounas Kitchen June 30, 2014 at 9:27 pm Reply Hi there, Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my food blog. I am very pleased to hear that you and Elaine enjoyed my pita bread recipe. To answer your question I haven’t tried making a gluten free pita bread recipe quite yet. I have been doing my research and it seems that any gluten free recipe involves many other ingredients and I would have to switch the recipe a bit, but I will let you know when I do that, and I will be glad to share with you. 🙂 Are you doing only gluten free recipes? Loading... keraoregan July 1, 2014 at 1:46 am Thanks for that 🙂 I will try myself anyways no worries. Will post if any of my experiments work! Yes, my recipes are gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free as I’m on the paleo diet 🙂 Loading... Kouzounas Kitchen July 1, 2014 at 10:10 pm Oh I love the pale diet, and I will definitely try to post some recipes for you. My two friends are on that diet and loveee it. 🙂 I would love to see a gluten free pita recipe and please do keep me posted. Thank you very much. Loading... Abby's Kitchen July 8, 2014 at 11:23 am Reply I just want you to know that I have made your bread 3 times already and will continue to make it. I played around with the flour a few times. I used organic white whole wheat flour the first time (worked well). I used Kamut and it worked great (I did increase the water for the kamut to 1 1/4). I tried it with gf flour but that needs work. Thank you so much for sharing. I have shared a link to Elaine’s post on Welcome to Abby’s Kitchen fb page a few posts back where she links the recipe to you. I look forward to browsing your blog for more great ideas (I’m hoping you have some meat & dairy free traditional Greek dishes to try. Our family has transitioned to a whole foods plant based diet, and we have eliminated meat & dairy from our diet. Anyways, a particular movie comes to mind. I’m pretty sure you’ve watched “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”. One of my favorite clips, “What do you mean you don’t eat meat? That’s ok I make you lamb” LOL 😉 Loading... Kouzounas Kitchen July 10, 2014 at 12:30 am Reply Hi Abby, I am very happy to hear that you are making the bread recipe. I hope to mess with the recipe a few times to see what I can come up with. 🙂 Thank you for sharing your alterations and I will definitely try them out. I absolutely adore Elaine and glad I met you through her. I slowed down a bit with recipes since I am in Hawaii but thinking to post a few native to Maui. I will try to post some vegetarian recipes for you when I get back to Cali. Lol I love that movie and it’s one of my favorites. Every time I tell someone I’m Greek they bring that movie up Haaa. Too funny. 🙂 Loading... Pingback: March 18, 2015 at 5:45 pm The Kitchen Knife Guide By FIX | Kouzounas Kitchen katinavaselopulos March 18, 2015 at 6:30 pm Reply Looks good! I will try it some time!
