This is an easy recipe for pitta bread. Use your bread machine to help the dough rise easily, otherwise - cover and let it rise in a warm place.

Are you tired of the hard and rubbery ready-made pitta breads? So was I! These pitta breads are well-flavoured, soft, chewy and wheaty. Try dabbing these breads in dips such as houmous or taramasolata. They are also great served at summer picnics and barbecues or used to make sandwiches. You will need a pizza stone to make this recipe.

These pitta breads are delicious served freshly baked, warm from the oven. They make a good accompaniment to soups, dips and pâtés or they can be left to cool, then split and filled: try goat’s cheese with roasted vegetables and red onion rings; grilled meat and vegetables; or hummus and a crunchy mixed salad.

These pitta breads are deliciously soft. They need to be brushed with oil and grilled or pan-toasted before serving. Enjoy as part of a meze meal, with dips or as a sandwich wrap.

This is an easy bread recipe that results in a soft, tender flatbread. My native Afghan friend says that this bread tastes better than the traditional pitta she buys at the store. Enjoy!

This pitta bread can either be baked or pan-fried. Both give different results, so feel free to experiment. Enjoy on their own, as a sandwich wrap or with Greek dips and spreads.

This pitta bread is simple and delicious. Wholemeal flour is combined with soya flour to make this recipe. The pittas are baked and sliced to form the pocket. Enjoy as a sandwich bread or with houmous.

Delicious turkey burger, with spring onion and Worcestershire sauce; a small amount of Cajun spice is optional. Then serve with a garden salad. Also for those health conscious try it in a wholemeal pitta. Less calories but all the same goodness.

Here's a recipe for a healthy, tasty school lunch 'sandwich' that the kids can take with them and assemble themselves at their lunch table! These are made with deli ham, fresh veggies and ranch salad dressing but there are loads of variations that will work including: Chopped pepperoni, mozzarella cheese and pizza sauce; chopped bacon, shredded lettuce, chopped tomato and ranch dressing; or sliced apples and peanut butter.
