I learned to make pita bread using this recipe from my friend's copy of Nita Mehta's Lebanese cookbook. When I moved, I had to beg her for the recipe because other recipes that I found online were not so tasty or easy.Not only is the stovetop/griddle method of cooking pitas easy, but it is so fun and satisfying to see them balloon up to make pita pockets!
