International » Pita Bread
Dmitra "Dima" Khoury shares her mother Najla's pita bread recipe. While growing up in Lebanon, Dmitra helped her mother make 150 pita rounds per week for the family, carrying the dough to an aunt's house for baking - the only oven in the village! This dough takes time to rise but only 8-10 minutes to bake. High oven heat causes the rounds to steam and puff up, creating a perfect pocket for fillings. You can also use the dough for flat-bread pizzas or Lebanese spinach pies. Or serve with Dima's vibrant and delicious Middle Eastern tabbouleh.
