Why bake your own pitas when they're available at the market? One bite of these, fresh and warm from the oven, and you'll know why! This recipe is an adaptation from The Gourmet Cookbook. Note: Few simple rules to ensure that they puff properly. 1. Roll an even thickness and not too thin. 2. Allow rolled out dough to rest 30 minutes 3. Bake on a stone or an inverted sheet pan in a very hot preheated oven (oven thermometer is great to have). 4. Do not open the oven to check for puff, steam will escape!
