Middle Eastern Pita Bread

Home baked then grilled, Middle Eastern pita bread.

over again until the dough was elastic and smooth. Baking each batch in an extremely hot oven, approaching 500 degrees. I’m finally well satisfied with the result. It all started when I got fed up with pita bread purchased at grocery stores. Honestly it’s not the real deal, not even close.

I’d recently eaten at Lebanese Taverna in Bethesda, Maryland and loved tearing off pieces of their grilled pita and scooping up hummus. Then a few weeks later I had a delicious, more textured pita at Mazza in Salt Lake City, Utah. I had a Pita on Cooling Rackcraving to make warm pita in my home kitchen that became my charter. What texture and taste will my final version become?

Audrey, my daughter, speaks Arabic so she hunted down some Middle Eastern food websites and translated several pita recipes. These were Arab Egyptian and Palestinian recipes in their native tongue.

I made many editions of pita bread. One week I turned out 4 batches in 6 days. Some were thicker and spongier like Greek pita, some almost cracker like. Each one had a slightly different balance of ingredients; flour, salt, yeast, sugar, water, oil, reaching for the right texture. Adjusting, tweaking, testing quantities. Working on nuances I experimented; all-purpose or bread flour, active or instant yeast, olive or vegetable oil, sugar or honey.

Rising and resting time is another variable. Recipes greatly varied. I tried rising after kneading, resting after portioning, and rising after rolling. By the time I arrived at this recipe I discovered my favorite was 30 minute dough rise, then roll and bake. Happily it cut the start to finish time almost in half.

Stacked Pita BreadMy taste testers were troopers through the thick and thin of it, literally. We tested them plain on their own merit, then with accompaniments like hummus, falafel with tzatziki sauce and feta cheese dip. They shared feedback, concerns and celebrated successes. I arrived at a version that is a little chewy, thin enough to tear and dip, but still pliable enough to wrap around fresh falafel. To make the absolute perfect, puffy, golden brown pita rounds, crank the oven to 475 degrees, bake on a heated baking sheet on the bottom oven rack, and then flash grill for striped char flavor.

You might also enjoy Hummus, Falafel with Tzatziki Sauce, Baba Ghannouj, Feta Tzatziki Dip, Roasted Red Pepper Htipiti, and Creamy Italian Feta.

Weaving middle eastern mezza dishes

Middle Eastern Mezza or Meze is like Spanish Tappas, small varied dishes of meat, beans, vegetables and grains with rich regional flavors. Often served for lunch, before the main dinner course or for appetizers at a party, everyone can spoon morsels onto their small plate or dip with pita bread or chips. This is the third edition in a Eggplantcontinuing thread of interlacing meze recipes. The first two are Hummus and Falafel with Tzatziki Sauce.

Baba Ghannouj is made with roasted eggplant, a royal purple vegetable with light yellow flesh. Roasted along with the eggplant, the aromatic garlic becomes mellow, golden and easily melds into the dipping sauce. The smoky flavor and rustic color invites the eyes and the palette with a traditional garnish of pomegranate seeds.

Time: 45 Min | Cook Time: 1 Hour 40 Min | Yield: 2 1/2 Cups | Level: Easy
