Greek Night Prep: Pita Bread

Pita bread is not a PITA–it’s actually quite easy. I’m using a Cook’s Illustrated recipe that involves 2 parts white and 1 part wheat flour, with honey, salt, yeast and water as the binding ingredients. So far it’s turned out well and I’m waiting for the last rise to go before forming and cooking.

Since I don’t want to turn on our main oven and heat the whole house, I’m doing the baking on the Weber Q200 I bought about a month ago. It heats up to over 500 degrees and it will make two at a time a snap.
