Good timing! I planned for pita pockets on this weeks menu, but the store only had generic pita bread with very long shelf lives. I scrapped the plan for this week, but will add it back for next! Thank you!

Homemade tzatziki...plain yogurt, grated cucumber, and crushed garlic. I grate the whole cucumber and then drain out the liquid...others don't use the seeds. Experiment with how much garlic you like. We like ours fairly garlicky. I like this just as a dip with pita or bread or drizzled over roast chicken. I'd show you a picture but I'm camaraless until I figure something out. I wish you'd stop posting such good ideas....you're giving me way too many things to want to do this time of year! (grin)

Oops--can't even spell my own name...sheesh...

Kim,
I'm glad that my timing is good :-)
I thought these were much better than any I have had store bought.

Angela,
I made a yogurt sauce but only did yogurt, garlic, salt and pepper. I never thought of the cucumber. Yum!

Great recipe! I had been searching for a sourdough pita recipe that included an overnight soak - this one worked out well for me :) I had some trouble moving the pitas into the oven without tearing them - but they still tasted delicious!

Millie said...

Gracefultable,
I'm glad you liked them. I'm making them again this week. I can't remember having trouble moving them but most likely I was pretty generous with the flour when rolling them out. I tend to use too much flour when doing things like tortillas so it would make sense that I used quite a bit. I'll try to pay attention this week and note in the recipe.

Wow- this recipe looks great! I can't wait to try this. Question- have you ever tried freezing the pita breads once they are cooked? How convenient it would be to pull one out of the freezer as needed!

Kylie,

I haven't frozen them. Each time I've made them there have not been enough left over :-)
I think that it would work well to cut them and open the pocket and then freeze them. They would be very convenient to have on hand.

Katie said...

Excellent recipe! Thanks! There's nowhere around where I live to buy sourdough breads, so making these is a real treat. They taste great!

Millie said...

You are welcome Katie. Wardeh at Gnowfglins has sourdough pita as one of the recipes in her sourdough ecourse. I haven't made them yet but from her video they look sooooo much better than mine. If you are wanting to learn more about sourdough and find some terrific recipes you might check out her ecourse.
