  1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in salt and enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Do not let rise. Divide dough into six pieces; knead each for 1 minute. Roll each into a 5-in. circle. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Place upside down on greased baking sheets. Bake at 500 degrees F for 5-10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

I listened to the users who said this turns out nothing like pita but is good for a quick dinner roll recipe hoping to make some easy rolls. I follwed the directions exactly, and it made wonder...

Slight modification. To those who said the bread was bland, it's supposed to be....it's not supposed to get in the way of the flavors of the food. That being said I found that oven baking prod...

This was great. The taste and texture was just like store-bought or restaurant pita. Just be sure not to make them too thick as I did with a couple of mine.

Easy to make, but mine didn't puff. I did replace 1/3 of the flour with whole wheat and that could have been the cause. No problem though, I was just making them to dip into hummus. Delicious! *...

I loved this. The texture and taste were great. Thanks
