I just got back from holiday in Kefalonia Greece. While there, my family and I enjoyed our fair share of gyros. They’re so good.
One of the restaurants we dined at made their own pitas right in front of us. Talk about gorgeous. Hot, fluffy and very tasty too homemade pitas are amazing!
So I decided when I got back home I would have to do the same. These are so easy to make and the ingredients are all readily available. Theses homemade pitas are not even comparable to the mass produced pita bread available in the supermarkets. It is definitely worth spending a bit extra time to make your own for a special treat.
Last night was gyro night at our house and I promise you, they were just as good if not better than those available on the island.
There are a lot of different homemade pita recipes out there but this is now my favourite. After watching the chefs make them, I think I managed to copy the recipe exactly. It’s quite similar to paratha recipes I make all the time which are popular in Indian cuisine. The difference is the the use of olive oil instead of melted ghee for these homemade pitas.
Next time you make tandoori kebabs or gyros, give this homemade pita recipe a try.
