Yup, you heard it here first. Winter in New Jersey officially ended today when I made my first batch of pita for the year. Let the Picnics Begin!!
I tried something I had been wondering about all winter. Why haven’t I been able to get 100% of my pitas to puff up? I’ve solved it.
I lowered the rack to the lowest point in the oven, let the oven get good and hot and baked at 500F / 260C for 3-4 minutes.
Results? 100% puffed pitas.
I’ve modified the pita site to change the position of the rack.
