Pita Power

When I finally got off the couch to take a shower Wednesday, I decided to make pita bread. It takes time to let the dough rise, and since I didn't have to work, I had some spare hours to kill.

A quick search of Tastespotting yielded this food blog: Always Order Dessert. It's a cute site, definitely browse it later.  The dough was pretty simple to make, and was easy to work with.  We went to get dinner while my dough disks were rising the second time, so they sat for about an hour instead of the recommended 20 minutes. I have no idea how this affected the final product, but I had satisfactory puffing of my pita!  If you're making this, I think you just need to make sure you don't handle the disks too much before baking.  Also, they say to use a bread stone to bake them on, but I just used a cookie sheet in the oven, and it worked fine.

That Guy enjoyed them, as did I, so I will be making these again. Yay success!
