Greenlandic Pita

I love the internet! You can find so much stuff you never knew you wanted to know. The other day I wanted to make hummus and pita, but was out of yeast. I was out of lemon juice and tahini, too, but that's a post for another day. I found a recipe for baking powder pita that is said to have originated in Greenland. Here is my version.

2 c flour
1-1/3 c whole wheat flour
2 t baking powder
2 t salt
3 T oil
¾-1 c water
  1. Mix together flours, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Stir in oil and water.
  3. Knead until smooth (about 5 minutes).
  4. Allow dough to rest 20 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 480°F.
  6. Divide into 8 balls. Roll each to 1/8" thickness.
  7. Spray pitas with water.
  8. Bake on pizza stone or greased cookie sheet 7-8 min. or until pitas begin to turn golden.

  1. Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog. These sound really good. Did they turn out. I've never ventured into making pitas on my own. I may have to try it.


Sorry--I've had to close comments down because I've been getting so much spam.
