Greek-style Pita


This recipe makes a soft, fairly flexible Greek-style pita capable of wrapping food. Some people split the pita, but this is fairly difficult
You'll want the loaves warmed when you serve them.

Instructions


*The use of both xanthan gum and guar gum gives extra springiness and stretch in comparison to just using one alone.

** Expandex will improve the stretch of the bread. This recipe uses 1 Tablespoon of Expandex per cup of finished flour and the rest regular tapioca flour. Notice the reduced amount of gums.
