Pitta Bread

Often an accompaniment to hummus and other dips, pitta breads were one of the first foods I tried with my boys when they were very little. You can make pitta bread pizza simply by placing toppings on shop bought pitta bread, as I did when the boys were younger, however, it's actually really easy to make your own. Homemade ones are also far superior in taste too. And, this recipe doesn't contain yeast, it's simple, quick and easy to make and is vegan too.

A very simple recipe for a school day tea, a sunny summer afternoon in the garden or a Friday night film night. I don't know about you but if the boys help me make something they are far more likely to eat all of it up.

A pitta bread is a bread made with flour, water and salt, and then thoroughly rolled into flattened dough. You might recognize it from many cultures but with a different name, as every bread eating culture will have at one time eaten this type of bread. But no matter what they are called they are quick, easy and delicious - the bread is vegan too so if you are careful with your choice of topping you also have a quick and easy vegan meal too.

  1. In a big bowl combine flour and salt. Mix in olive oil and water.
  2. Knead into a soft and sturdy dough -It should be smooth. 
  3. Divide into 8 equal portions then flatten out with your hand - the boys liked helping with this bit 
  4. Cover the bowl and allow to rest for 40 minutes at room temperature.
  5. Place on a paper-lined baking sheet - we use the washable and reusable ones
  6. Choose your toppings and place in oven
  7. Bake in the preheated oven at 200°C/400°F for approx. 15 minutes.
  8. If cooking without a topping the heat from the oven should make the pitta puff up - however we were making our into pizza so they stayed flatter.

How to Serve

Serve straight away whilst still hot. We had two each as they were so yummy and had them with a milkshake made from a dash of homemade strawberry syrup in a glass of milk.

  6. Thanks for posting this, we'll be having a go at making our own.
    Love pitta bread with hummus and veggies 😀

  7. My 18 month old doesn't seem to be a big fan of pizza so we haven't tried for 2 months now. I will give this recipe a try and see how we get on. Like you say who doesn't like pizza!!

  8. Making food from scratch is so much healthier than buying the already made ingredients from the store. The pita doesn't look too difficult to make (I am a disaster at baking)and the mini pizzas looks so delicious! My favorite topping has to be cheese and pepperoni.

  9. These look tasty, and easy to make too! Getting kids involved definitely makes healthier food seem a lot more interesting.

  10. These look so tasty. I will have to make these with my little man. I love anything veggi on my pizzas
