Gluten-free pita bread

Puffy yeast- and gluten-free pita bread, perfect for splitting and filling with your favorite vegetables and a scoop of hummus.

I love Mediterranean food, and to me, that includes gluten-free pita bread. But I find it so hard to find pita bread in the store, so I decided to make my own pita bread. In my head, this was going to be a tedious and difficult affair, but, turns out it was actually very (very) easy! In fact, it only takes about 20 min from you start till you’re ready to eat these delicious bad boys.

I used a Toro Gluten-free light flour for this recipe, but I assume any flour will be okay. I also used Xanthan gum, which you can either buy at Walmart or here! I also used tapioca starch, which you should also be able to find in your local grocery store. The rest of the ingredients are things most people have at home already

  • Baking powder
  • salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Egg
  • Milk

Homemade gluten-free pita bread

Puffy yeast- and gluten-free pita bread, perfect for splitting and filling with your favorite vegetables and a scoop of hummus.

  • 240 g gluten-free flour (I used Toro light flour mix)
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 35 g tapioca starch
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used 1% )
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400F and line a baking pan with baking paper.

  2. Mix all the dry ingredients; flour, xanthan gum, tapioca starch, salt, and baking powder.

  3. Mix the oil and egg together, and add to the wet ingredients.

  4. Start mixing using a stand mixer, and gradually add the milk. The dough should be wet and sticky, so you might have to add more milk.

  5. Mix it all together. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and divide it into 5 equal pieces. Roll the pieces into a ball, and firmly press them into 1/4 thick discs.

  6. Place them on the baking pan, and put them in the oven for 2 minutes. Flip them, and bake for another 2 minutes. Flip them back again and bake until lightly browned, about 4 minutes.

  7. Take them out of the oven, let cool until cold enough to handle, and slice so you can fill them with all the yumminess.
