    Made these last night using the white wheat flour from the burger buns recipe and turned out great. Amazed I got the pockets! Thanks.

    Sugar is used to activate the yeast. It is consumed by the yeast and will not tax your body or cause disruption in taste bud reprogramming.

    Hi Julie, I’m a bit confused. We add sugar? I thought PD was sugar free.

      Sara, in bread recipes the sugar is usually just a small amount to activate the yeast.

    I have tried making pitas so many times without having them puff, Julie’s tip about rolling them out 2 at a time and then putting it on the hot pan immediately did the trick! They turned out perfect!!

    I made these this afternoon. Not too bad for a first time pita bread maker! I did have one problem though. When I mixed the flour, water and yeast together, my dough was extremely crumbly. I had to keep wetting my hands in order to get it all together to form a ball. It still seemed extremely dry. I think that I may have overworked the dough a bit. Any suggestions?

    I tried making Pita Bread years ago, and I didn’t get any pockets, so I never tried again. Until today. They were so simple to make, and they puffed up beautifully, forming perfect pockets. Best of all, my pickiest son thought they tasted great!

    Could you use a different flour that would be gluten free, like oat or something else that you feel would work well?

    Can I use whole wheat pastry flour instead of whole wheat flour (that’s all I have right now)?

      I haven’t tested the recipe with whole wheat pastry flour. I’m not sure it will form a pocket. If you try it let us know?

    Made these, but substituted sugar with sugar free applesauce. They still turned out great, and I was surprised at how much they actually puffed up.. Next time I’m going to have to roll them out thinner!

    Ok hoping i can get some answers. but I just tried this out and used oat flour mixed with a small amount of almond flour and ground flax. It ended up really wet with using the same measurements of flour and water you did. so i added more oat flour to get the right consistency, it did rise ok. Then during baking they puffed up a tiny bit, but stayed mostly flat. I rolled them fairly thin, should i roll them thicker and try that way? Any suggestions? A friend of mine and I are looking for a non wheat based flour way of making these. Thank you.

    I have made these several times and I love them. I have made pita chips and pizzas a few times. Very good!

    I just made these pita bread. There may be a bit of a learning curve here… At least for me. Lol! The first few burnt and did not puff up. I think I was rolling them out too thin. The last few I made smaller and thicker. They puffed up just right and I am enjoying a yummy sandwich with one of them now!! Great recipe! I will be making these again ! Thanks Julie!

    about how long would you leave the rolled out pitas before baking to prevent them puffing up into pockets? (for pizza crusts, for example).

    • posted by Julie Marie on May 26, 2013

      They will work as pizza crusts even if they puff up they will lay back down. If you roll out and let rest about 10 minutes they will not open into pockets. You can also top this dough raw for pizza.
