You may think I"m exaggerating when I say that. Like, "groundbreaking? Really, Rachel? It"s pita bread."

But seriously, it"s not just pita bread, it"s perfectly soft pillows of deliciousness sent straight from heaven. If you could bite into a cloud, it would be like this pita bread. I was so excited the first time I made this, I was literally jumping up và down in the kitchen. Ask Pete, he"ll tell you.

I already professed my love for/obsession with Middle Eastern food when I shared my sister-in-law"s family recipe for Authentic Creamy Hummus, so it should be no surprise that I"m going kind of nuts over this pita bread. I worked at a Middle Eastern restaurant in my hometown, and I used khổng lồ eat roughly a dozen pieces of this bread per shift. It was just SO GOOD và it was always hot & fresh out of the wood-burning oven...omg. But in the interest of continuing khổng lồ fit in my clothes, I actually had khổng lồ go cold turkey & completely quit eating the bread because I could NEVER have a reasonable amount. It was too good.

As I"ve searched for good Middle Eastern restaurants after we moved away from the Metro Detroit area, the one thing I have never been able to lớn find is this amazing pita bread. So when I stumbled across the recipe on a blog called home in Greece and the photos looked like the pita of my dreams - I HAD lớn try it right away.

Oh man - I am so glad I did. It"s just lượt thích the fabulous pillowy bread I know from the restaurants...made with just a few simple ingredients.
