I have another recipe from the King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking book for you today.
As I was flipping through the pages I notices a recipe for whole wheat pitas, and I thought to myself, “Meh, pitas are so dry and not very good; why would someone take the time to make them?!” And then I read the introduction to the recipe and it said something along the lines of – store bought whole wheat pitas not only have the texture of cardboard but taste like it too. Yes! That is so true. But then the book went on to tell how wonderfully tender and delicious the homemade version was. My interest was peaked and I put it on my list.
When I made these whole wheat pitas I was surprised at how easy it was. Whip up a dough, let it rise, roll it out, cook it super hot, done. My kids loved helping me roll out the dough and they were a fun change from bread for our egg salad. These would be a fun Saturday morning activity for the family because not only is it pretty easy and hands on, but the family will go nuts when the pitas puff up in the oven. It was a lot of fun and they taste good to boot.
