Pita Bread

It's time for a party, because these fine pita's are the life of it!

These pita breads, are my go-to when entertaining. They are perfect for dips, to be eaten with prosciutto or  with any antipasto affiliate for that matter. They are pumped with air and as light as a feather making them an absolute joy to consume in gluttonous bites.

Not only is there is a huge sense of satisfaction when eating them, but making these pita's also brings with it a thrill, whether you are fascinated by the growing powers of the yeast, you like a good knead or you are elated by the puffing up of these carb delights on the stove top - these guys really do bring on the warm and fuzzy's . Did I mention they take next to no time to make? PITA PARTY!
