Similar to a wheat pita, it is bread made of whole wheat flour. I make it for my diabetic husband all the time. Serve these with your favorite fish or vegetable dish.

Awesome recipe! I'm a health nut but love junk food so I use this recipe to make chips. I roll them out real thin slice them up with a pizza roller brush them with olive oil then bake them 425 untill they are golden. Everyone loves them even my not-so-health-nut boyfriend. Read More

Did not really work out at all. The dough never really became "firm and elastic" so I doubled the recipe with half all-purpose and half wheat flour. After that it turned out much better. Read More

These are very good. I just started Phase 2 of the South Beach diet and was actually looking for an easy whole wheat pizza dough recipe and happened upon this one which works great! Before adding the oil and water I mixed some garlic powder Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese in with the WW flour and salt. I rolled them about 6" in diameter and 1/8" thick and cooked them in a pan according to the instructions. I then topped one with a little pizza sauce (sugar free) veggies and mozzarella (reduced fat). Popped it in the toaster oven for a quick treat--a perfect guilt-free reward for graduating to the next phase of the diet plan! Thanks for the recipe. I'm sure it will become a staple in my kitchen!

Awesome! The trick is to roll it thinly and use a dry pan. These are crisp and dry so plan to use them as a side bread not a wrap. Read More

I added an addl' 3T of water as the dough was a little dry. I rolled out each of the balls of dough with a little thickness as I like my chapati a little soft in the midle. I also cooked on high heat in order to get them to bubble up quickly brown and crisp. Served with butternut squash/apple curry I made from allrecipes. Very simple and yummy will for sure make again. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This recipe was very good. My whole family liked them (and that takes some doing!) Quick and easy to make rolled out nicely. I served them with my own homemade korma curry. My youngest had three and she is a picky eater. Will definitely make again. Read More
