Pita Pocket Bread

Susan Cutler


This recipe is easy, but it takes a little while as it is made with yeast. Prep Time listed takes into consideration rising time of dough. This is fun bread to make with only a couple of minutes (2-3 min.)to bake in the oven.

I am posting one Vegetarian Sandwich recipe for 'Jerk Tempeh Pitas' Here is your link:

veggiebyseason.com and is inspired by Mellow Mushroom!

***If you want make 'Pita Chips' instead!! Simply use with your favorite dip!
