  • Whisk milk, egg, olive oil, and vinegar together in a separate bowl until well combined, about 1 minute. Stir milk mixture in gradually to the flour mixture on low speed; mix until a soft dough comes together, about 5 minutes.

  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide dough into 6 equal pieces; roll each piece on a floured surface to a 6-inch circle. Place on the prepared baking sheets; cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Heat a pizza stone in the oven.

  • Spray pita breads with water and place them straight on the hot pizza stone.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until puffed and lightly golden, 5 to 7 minutes.

I made this for a gluten-free friend, having spent the weekend before making several batches of regular pita bread for a falafel feast. While it does not fully puff up while baking (so you will not be able to reliably have a "pocket" to stuff fillings in), the flavor and texture are excellent. It will easily fold in half around whatever fillings you choose. It is super easy to mix up and roll out, making 6 generous pitas. Read More

This was a great recipe we where wanting to make Gyros and I didn t know what I would use for mine. This hit the spot also going to modify it a bit with some spices and use for a pizza crust. This is probably the best dough recipe I have found to date. Thank You Read More
