Bread Baking Babes - Pita Bread

Every month baking with the Babes is exciting, because I'm baking breads that I would never in my wildest dreams thought I would have tasted, much less baked. But this month is especially cool, because it's pita, something I eat and love, but again, would never have thought I could bake.

The recipe is amazingly easy (go here to Ilva's to see the recipe), and the pitas came out perfectly. I don't have a baking stone, and I can't imagine how fabulous these would be baked on a stone, because they're pretty damn fantastic the way I baked them.

I liked my pita with a bit of peanut butter and jam. Scott liked his with ham and mustard and tomato. My Dad turned one of his into a breakfast pita with eggs, bacon and potato (drool), and my Mom filled hers with greek salad (obviously the smartest of us all). Does it really matter what you fill it with? Nope, just make 'em and eat 'em!
Please go and visit all the other babes and see how their pitas turned out; their links are all over on the right hand side.

See you tomorrow!

I love pita! Have tried to bake them once myself - but yours have turned out better I think!

My favourite stuffing is really spicy chile con carne!! Or greek-style lamb... drool....!

I love how puffy your pitas turned out. Like turtles drawn up into their shells. I love the idea of a breakfast pita. Your dad is my kind of man!
