“I found this at the BHG website. The recipe calls for milk but I made them with water and they turned out fine. I also found that while the cooking time given was 5-7 minutes, it took mine an extra 2 minutes to brown.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the ingredients in your breadmaker as follows: milk, oil, salt, sugar, flour and yeast. Or, follow the recommendations of the manufacturer.
  2. Select the dough cycle.
  3. Once the dough is made let it rest for 10 minutes. I let mine rest in the machine.
  4. Divide dough into 10 balls.On a floured surface, roll each ball to approximately a 6 inch circle.
  5. Place on a greased cookie sheet(s).
  6. Brush each with a little oil and cover and let rise for about 30 minutes or until slightly risen.
  7. Once risen lightly oil the top again.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for approximately 5-7 minutes(mine took an extra 2 minutes).
  9. The original recipe calls for the pita to be turned half way through baking, but I found this unnecessary.
  10. Cool on a rack.
  11. Makes ten pita.
