Cocktail pita

June 5, 2013  •  Category:


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!

    It could be a great project. I love to make pitas.
    Thank you for the idea

    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.

    Were can I find the recipe?

    • Joumana says:

      @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 up

    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.

    • Joumana says:

      @Mark : Great! I would be the first viewer of your videos, the sito’s way. 🙂

      @Leigh: @Kroger’s? wow, going mainstream I see, great news!

    All the Lebanese bakeries where I live in Canada sell these.

    A local brand (Mother Nature?) here in Canada sells them, I can get them at the grocery store down the street! Great with hummus.

    After reading the comments, I will try and look for these at Trader Joes! Love the mini size and how perfect for entertaining.

    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*.

    None of the Lebanese bakeries in Sydney have these…They look so cute!! I can’t wait to hear your recipe Joumana

    • Joumana says:

      @Lisa: I have got a recipe on the blog for regular size; I am assuming you would just need to cut them much smaller! 🙂

    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.

    They are just adorable. Small, edible spoons. I’ll give this a try at a weekend with bad weather. Will cheer me up, I’m sure.

  13. Kathleen says:

    Nothing is as good as home made. Your previous pita recipe is terrific and we make it all the time.

    These are too adorable!! I could just picture them stealing the show and being fawned over at any potluck or picnic.
