I love, and make, both hummus and baba ganoush. But, I have never made pita. Is it anything like making chapati? Would you mind posting a recipe for pita?

TL-I use the bread machine to make the dough. You roll the dough out after it rises, let them rise about 20 minutes, and bake in the oven (425-450) for 4-5 minutes. I usually bake on a cookie sheet (ungreased) at 425. I posted the recipe I used yesterday under the What are you baking thread. The only thing different re: making pita and making bread is adding oil, oh, and I usually add some pepper. They puff up and make the air pocket thanks to the hot oven. To soften them, I put them in a brown paper bag (I use an alligator clip to close). Easy peasy.

I copied and pasted your recipe. But, it uses the oven. I'm not turning on my oven in this weather.

I wasn't feeling well last night, so DH made me a toasted English muffin and a scrambled egg. He had a Domino's artisan pizza with spinach and feta. Pretty good for a chain (I had a couple bites last time he ordered it).

I'm thinking one could do them on the grill outside with the lid down...Because of the short baking time, the oven is only on for about 15 minutes, 20 tops. I do them with the AC on.

No grill with lid, just a hibachi.

I think I will try making chapati. I found this video that looks easier than what I have done in the past:

No reason why you can't serve that with hummus. I use my lefse griddle for chapati.
