Homemade pita bread is so good ♥
You should try it .. You will never buy them ever again.
There is a very big difference on vacuum-packed-cardboard-pita bread from the supermarket and then homemade & soft pita bread.
It doesn’t take long, to make the dough & the time it takes for the dough to rise, you can spend on many things.
Clean. play with your kids, walk in the park – Among other things 😉
Afterwords it is just to take out the dough & roll it out.
As it takes a bit more time, than buying pre-made bread, I always make pita bread in the weekends (where you have some extra time on your hands)
it is also more exciting & special for the kids, to get pita bread, if it isn’t something they get all weekdays 🙂
→ I always make my dough in a kitchen machine (except with scones), to knead the dough properly 🙂
You can get very nice bread, buns & cakes without a kitchen machine – But the kitchen machine makes it a bit more perfect, puffy & the baking a bit easier, as you don’t have to knead yourself 😉
