Good bread is pretty important in my house of boys. Most grocery store bread has a bunch of crap in it that is totally unnecessary, so I make my own. I generally try to make the things we eat most often, myself. Same goes for the frequently consumed grocery items like milk, I purchase the best I can.
Making bread sounds really hard and really “advanced” but it is so not either of those things. I am not a gadget person in the kitchen but I do have a bread machine. The biggest benefit is the dough cycle that mixes and rises the bread in a consistent temp which is virtually imporssible to achieve in my apartment. I have a very old ’80’s bread machine cookbook that is my guide. Lots of options and you certainly don’t need a machine to do any of this. This pita is a couple times a month recipe.
1-1/3 C water
3 tbsp Olive Oil
1-1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 C whole wheat flour
2 tsp yeast
Two rises, portion and roll out into whatever size pita you want. Roll with a pin until thin. Bake in a 500 degree oven for about 4-8 minutes. Beside just eating them in sandwiches, I also cut them up and dip them in a mixture of pesto and yogurt.
