One time, long ago, I made pitas and they turned out perfectly! I was thrilled to make them and they actually puffed up in the oven all by themselves! Then, I lost the recipe for hmm, over a year or so to the interwebs. just couldn't find it. until, .... TODAY!!!
And I will share it with you, and myself, so I can find it again soon. Because I love homemade pitas!!
Make sure you only roll them out to 1/4". I used my handy rolling pin spacers that my husband got me for Christmas (or was it my birthday?) a year or two ago! I was rolling mine too thin all those times I tried to make pitas and ended up with thick tortillas instead.
Also, I took the suggestion of the first commenter, and added a 1/4 cup of water to the bottom of the oven for each batch of pitas I put in. I only baked them for 4 minutes at around 500*. They were great. mmmm. You better believe I will be dreaming of warm homemade pitas tonight! :-)
