Perfect Pitas

Long before Pita Chips became a popular item on store shelves and a staple at weekend gatherings, my Mom was making her own pitas on a daily basis. Since the moment my twin sister and I tasted the buttery, whole wheat goodness, we knew she should have trademarked them! I won’t deny that I am a huge fan of Stacy’s Pita Chips (naked, cinnamon sugar, etc.) but nothing beats my Mom’s pitas. Not only are they whole wheat, but they’re low in calories compared to your standard pita or potato chip, low in fat, and are extremely inexpensive to make. They’ve become a favorite of my roomies and most of my childhood friends, too. Served with a side of hummus or eaten alone, they make the perfect appetizer, side for a sandwich, or a salty treat!
