Pita Bread (gluten free, lactose free, low FODMAP)

Last updated on 12.11.2023

After giving up on store bought pita bread that tastes like sandpaper, we decided to try to make our own. The result was tasty and sturdy to hold all the fillings. It doesn’t have a natural pocket but it takes seconds to create one using a sharp knife.
Tip: Use lactose-free milk for low FODMAP.

This recipe is for 8 pitas.
