I have started making pita bread, as I stated STARTED I have made some changes, and what I have now is: I use my breadmaker to make the dough of normal bread, more whole wheat than plain flour then I use some extra white flour to make small balls, which later I flatten out with a rolling pin (?) then comes the trick, for I have tried various ways, but last night I put them in the oven, a recipe I had said 3 mins each side, no way the first side was like 10 mins, it is till they blow up (more or less nicely) and then 3 mins the other side.
What came out was not real flour tortillas, but was very good, first warm they were good, and now cold they are nice and crispy. My husband really enjoyed them.
For the dough I used (more or less the quantities listed); and then watch it if you need more water or more flour By the way I use these same things and quantities to make my bread. In the bread I add various things, for instance caraway seeds, or garlic, or raisins, whatever I feel like The bread always comes out good. So this is my always recipe for bread or dough.
