I’m always trying to incorporate more whole grains into my family’s diet – but I try to go about it in ways that they don’t even see coming. Like, this pita bread for instance. I’ve been making my own pitas for years now. If you’re new to bread making, pita bread is a great place to start. It’s relatively easy, and even quick – in the scheme of bread making. I usually start my dough around 3 PM, nd by 6, we’re enjoying warm fresh pitas.

Last week I thought, let me switch it up a little and try making something new. So I tried the whole wheat version of my favorite pita dough. It has a slightly nuttier flavor quality, and a little more chew to the bread. But honestly, both of those qualities are welcomed in my home when it comes to bread! I think these will definitely be our go to pitas from now on. Healthier? Check. Tastier? Check. Kids gobbled it up? Check.  And, leftovers always make awesome pita pizzas for the next day’s lunch.

If you’ve never tried making your own pita bread at home, I highly encourage it. You’ll never be able to go back to store bought pitas again!

    Those look really fantastic! I lost my recipe for pitas so I’m happy to have new one to try 🙂

    I have been a fan of every recipe I have tried of yours, so tomorrow I’m trying the pita. A question: how well do these freeze? And do they only store for three days in the fridge, or do they sometimes last a week. I’m hoping to make them once a week for lunches. Thanks!

      They freeze beautifully! I just tuck them in a freezer storage bag.
