Over a year ago I tried to make gluten free pita bread, but was under the misconception that rising them prior to rolling would be fruitless. Now that I’ve experimented more, I know this not to be the case. When someone recently asked me for a yeast-free pita bread recipe, it was a reminder that I needed to give them another go. And I’m absolutely thrilled how they turned out. I don’t know if it’s because it’s been about 10 years since I’ve had one or not, but they taste like gluten pita bread to me! This recipe was adapted from its gluten cousin Pita Bread Recipe on About.com. You can serve this pita bread with hummus dip, or use it as substitute for gluten free bread, as I did in one of the images below, with chicken salad. Enjoy!
UPDATE: Currently, I use my Gluten Free Naan Recipe (Indian Flatbread) for pita bread as they are amazing as you will see by their reviews. In addition, they are so simple to make! However, if you want something a bit chewier, stiffer and drier, like real pita bread, give this recipe a go.
