Pitas - They're What's For Dinner

(My pitas - Not as great of a photo as the original authors, but very tasty)

On Sunday evening, we had guests to dinner and I made a Mediterranean spread of pitas, hummus and Moroccan chicken with quinoa. It was yummy. I'll share the recipe and pictures of the chicken later this week, but wanted to get the pita recipe out now.

I'm confident in my homemade tortillas, and I attempted Navajo fry bread a couple weeks ago. Pitas are similar. This was my first try at them. They were fantastic, but I can only credit the recipe I followed. You can find it here. And, in case you were wondering, I used my cast iron.

(My hummus: Still needs more tinkering and a gigantor food processor)


  1. I'm impressed! They look fabulous! I've never tried to make pitas, but I do enjoy eating them. I'll have to send you Holly's hummus recipe. It's the best I've ever had, including when I lived in the Middle East.

  2. Oh that sounds so good. Look at you, Mrs. I would love M's hummus recipe too:) Have had hits and misses. Glad your pitas turned out well!

  3. Tahini.. you need tahini. That's what makes it smooth and creamy like Moby Dick's. That and some good lemon juice. Some day I will steal their secret recipe and make my own Moby Dick's at home in Cali!!!
