Back in the day, it wasn’t as easy to head over to the bakery to buy some pre-made packaged pita bread. So, of course, it had to be made from scratch! Our kitchens today aren’t designed like they were many years ago, so pita-baking methods have changed through the years. We normally don’t make our own pita bread because we live near grocery stores and Middle Eastern stores that sell it. Not everyone is as lucky, so we wanted to post this recipe! Everyone deserves to have pita bread in their life!

Traditionally, brick ovens are used to make pita bread, but unfortunately we don’t have one so we will be using a baking sheet and a regular oven. *If you have a pizza brick oven, you could use that!


24 ounces of dough/pizza dough (or you can make your own, we took the easy route)

Serving size: 24 ounces makes 8 pita rounds

Items needed:
Baking sheet
Rolling pin


1. Preheat panggangan at 550 degrees
2. Cut dough into 3 oz. balls (a little smaller than a tennis ball if you don’t have a scale)
3. Use roller to flatten it (try not to flatten it with your fingers because this will keep the bread from bubbling (rising) and separating)
4. Make sure the side of your pita going face down is floured well before placing them in your baking sheet
5. Move your panggangan rack to the center of the oven. Place baking sheet in panggangan and time it for 7 & a 1/2 minutes, or until browned. (Make sure panggangan is already preheated before adding your bread) After baking your first set, keep an eye on your pita in the oven. You may not need all 7 minutes because the panggangan will be very heated at this point

6. Remove from panggangan and place on cooling rack

The goal is to get your pita to rise in the panggangan like in the last picture.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
