These are cocktail or Happy Hour-size pitas; they are sold in bakeries and supermarkets in Beirut. I have not seen any in Dallas however. This could be a fun weekend project, unless you live in Beirut!
Joumana, I have been buying mini pitas about this size at Trader Joes! They opened here in Dallas in February. They come bagged in their bakery section and have a very simple (traditional) ingredient list. They’re not going to be as awesome as these, but they are great for my girls’ lunches! They make excellent crusts for mini-pizzas, too.
@Donna: I will be working on these in a few weeks; in the meantime, you can try just a plain pita recipe, just make the pitas tiny! let me see what I can dig uphttp://www.tasteofbeirut.com/2009/09/pita-on-the-grill/
These are something I am good at and make them the old way over hot stones.
I’ve been thinking of doing some YouTube videos to show how easy they are, including Sito’s old Beirut recipe but with my modern twist, they take me less than 2 hours to make, which means they fit into just about any work schedule.
Believe it or not, they have some whole wheat ones at Kroger. Now, the ingredient list, I’m sure, is not as healthy as Trader Joe’s, but I live on the opposite side of Plano to it. And actually, I have been trying to watch my gluten/wheat intake anyway, *sigh*.
These really do make for an excellent lunch/snack but they could totally rock out on their own as appetizers too! … and let’s not forget to mention that they are utterly adorable. I suggest warming them first so they’re soft and pliable. Whole Food) caaries them too.
