Homemade Pita Bread
TV is not something that Jack is afforded very often. But when he’s feeling sickly and pathetic, I can’t really force him to jump around and play outside. Let’s just say that Jack has probably watched more movies/TV this weekend, than in the last year combined.
When you have a kiddo that isn’t a snuggler and is acting like a little slug on your couch, what do you do to kill some time? You bake. And cook. A lot. My freezer runneth over.
One of the things I made this weekend was a huge batch of pita bread and some feta dip. YUM!
Preheat your oven to 500 degrees. Place a pizza stone on the bottom rack while the oven is warming up.
Make a batch of my homemade bread dough, and follow the directions through the 1st rise. On a lightly floured surface, take small balls of the dough and roll them flat.
|If you are rolling them out all at once, make sure you are flouring each pita very well!|
Place 3-4 pitas on the hot pizza stone and bake on the bottom rack. Bake for about 4 minutes on 1 side, and then about 2 minutes on the other side.
|Man that is 1 dirty oven! Let’s um, just say it was the previous tenant’s fault…|
Transfer to a wire rack and cool.
Turn this in to a meal with some cooked and shredded chicken and thinly sliced onions. Gyros – yum!
Inspiration for the snack came from Soule Momma.
