Back in December, I shared my long lost pita recipe with you. By long, lost, I mean I lost it on the internet. :-)

Anyway, I made some yesterday and they ALL PUFFED UP! I am so pumped to have this recipe. It is so easy and I like it as an alternative to bread in loaves.

I also discovered if I cook them on my pizza sheets, I can get all 12 pitas in the oven at once! You know what that means... doubling the recipe takes almost no time at all.
I have discovered it is all about how thick they are that makes them puff. I was rolling them too thin before, and thus they were not puffing. I started using my handy rolling pin bands, so I can't roll them out thinner than a 1/4" thick.

One last comment about making pitas--Put 1/4 cup of water in the bottom of the oven when you put the pitas in, to make it all steamy in there. For some reason, pitas like that. :-)
ps. did you see my tiny rolling pin? I brought my two regular sized rolling pins to a cookie party in December, and I haven't gotten them back yet. Guess I should work on that...
