Making homemade pita to accompany homemade hummus seemed like the right thing to do. Had I ever made homemade pita before? Nope. But I hadn’t baked bread and quite some time and pita seemed like a good way to get back to it.
This recipe was of the first to come up when I googled “pita recipe” in the middle of Whole Foods. I swapped out one cup of all purpose flour for whole wheat flour, but followed the rest of the recipe to a tee.
I would say that my pita dough way more than doubled in size within an hour. In my head, this was a sign of a recipe going in the right direction. A sign for the perfect pita!
Unfortunately, my pita didn’t puff as much as I think it was supposed to. And I didn’t make much effort in the aesthetics department. Between lack of puff (which creates the pocket) and “rustic” shape, I’m fairly certain I ended up with naan-esque bread. Whatever it was, it was warm, bready goodness that was absolutely delish dipped in hummus!
