Breadtopia Spawns Breadmania
Thanks Kris for sending this…
My husband says that I have an obsession with the bread-baking thing and have become a bread baking “MANIAC”. The disorder, I guess has been named BreadMania. According to the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition), LOL, there is no cure!
For the pita, I doubled your plain bread flour KN recipe. it takes quite a bit flour to keep the dough from sticking to the board and rolling pin, but that’s okay; it didn’t seem to harm the texture. This morning I rolled out large ones for stuffing. (Tennis ball size balls.) The nice thing is that they do not need a second proofing and take only about 6-8 min. in a 500 F oven on pre-heated stone. I own several bread books and have made pitas and other breads the old fashioned way, but will never go back.
Tomorrow, I will experiment with whole wheat and rye flour and seeded tops.
