Well. Not quite pita bread. Not quite naan. More like an environmentally correct hybrid.
And it's tasty, too! Especially topped with mozzarella, lettuce, tomatoes and olives.
The dough was ridiculously easy to mix up.
After a two day slumber in the frig, it was time to buck up and roll out the pitas.
That part was easy. Getting it to puff up during baking was not.
A big bubble here and there.
But the flavor! Straight out of the oven, brushed with butter and sprinkled with Trader Joe's garlic and parsley sea salt, it is amazing.
If I ever master the puffing part, I can see throwing a pita party with a buffet of different toppings. It would be like a magic act!
