Keto Pita Bread Ingredients

Most of the ingredients to make your own low carb pita breads are likely in your pantry right now.

Here is everything you need to make your own today.

Turmeric is an optional ingredient. I find it adds a nice flavour and colour to the pitas.

Inulin is used to activate the yeast. It is not found in supermarkets but is in most health food stores and low carb suppliers.

Xanthan gum is needed to help hold the breads together. Available in the supermarket in the gluten free aisle.

Coconut Flour. I know a lot of people do not like the taste of coconut flour. This recipe does have the taste of coconut come through in the bread. I do not recommend any replacements for it.

Almond meal or flour – for a nut free alternative sesame seed flour can be used in its place.

Ingredients

Instructions

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

  • There are two ways to cook the pita. My preferred method is baking at 250°C (480°f) fan-forced on a hot pizza stone. Alternatively, you can cook in a hot dry pan. If baking preheat the oven now.
  • Add yeast, inulin and warm water to a small bowl. Stir to combine; cover and leave to activate (15 minutes).
  • Place all ingredients including yeast mixture into a food processor or large bowl and mix into bursts until ingredients come together. Remove the dough from the bowl and knead into a smooth ball. Spray a large bowl with olive oil spray and place dough into the bowl. Cover and leave to rise for 1-2 hours in a warm place.
  • Cut dough into 12 pieces and roll out between two sheets of baking paper (very thin 1-2mm). Cut into 15-16cm/6 inches rounds. Cover and roll again to achieve a thin round. Place 1 round on top of another and using a bowl press down to seal the pita bread and trim to edges away. Carefully remove the pita from the bowl.
  • Place a pizza stone into the oven and preheat to 250°C fan forced or 270°C static.
  • If baking, place the pita onto the hot pizza stone and bake 3-4 minutes flipping the pita after 2 minutes. The pita should puff up and be soft. Transfer to a kitchen towel or tortilla basket and cover to keep warm and soft. Alternatively, cook in a moderate temp dry pan 30-40 seconds each side until lightly brown and slightly blistered. Transfer to a clean towel and wrap to keep warm and soft. Repeat with all the dough. Gently split or cut in half to open and fill.

THERMAL METHOD

  • There are two ways to cook the pita. My preferred method is baking at 250°C (480°f) fan-forced on a hot pizza stone. Alternatively, you can cook in a hot dry pan.
  • Add yeast, inulin and warm water to the mixer bowl. Heat 3 min/37°C/ speed 2. Leave to rest with lid on for 5 minutes.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to the mixer. Mix 7 sec/speed 3 then knead 3 min/dough setting. Remove dough from the mixer and knead into a smooth large ball. Spray a large bowl with olive oil spray and place dough into the bowl. Cover and leave to rise for 1-2 hours in a warm place.
  • Place a pizza stone into the oven and preheat to 250°C fan forced or 270°C static.
  • Cut dough into 12 pieces and roll out between two sheets of baking paper (very thin 1-2mm). Cut into 15-16cm/6 inches rounds. Cover and roll again to achieve a thin round. Place 1 round on top of another and using a bowl press down to seal the pita bread and trim to edges away. Carefully remove the pita from the bowl.

Notes

INGREDIENTS
  • Instant dried yeast is available at the supermarket. To activate it you do need inulin, honey or sugar. Sugar alcohols (including Monk Fruit) do not activate yeast.
  • Inulin is available in most health food stores, low carb suppliers and iHerb. I have included a link to a great value product in the recipe. Sugar or honey can be substituted as the carbs are consumed by the yeast.
  • Almond meal or almond flour can be used. A nut free substitute that works is sesame flour. Alternatively, lupin flour does work as well.
  • Coconut flour is not something I recommend swapping. Chia flour will make the dough very soft and too hard to handle/
  • Xanthan gum is required to hold the pita together.
  • I use gluten free and aluminium free double acting baking powder
  • Turmeric is optional but delicious!
  • Sour cream can be replaced with baked and mashed pumpkin or cauliflower. Be sure to squeeze out any excess moisture.
  • Apple cider vinegar is a must as it helps to strengthen the dough and give a great consistency to the pita breads.
CONSTRUCTING
  • I use the 15cm cake cutting ring /6 inches I found on Amazon to shape the pita.
  • I also have used my Lekue huge silicone mat for years and I love it. Placing it under the baking paper stabilizing the baking paper during rolling the dough
  • Leave the dough to rise for 2 hours. Ensure you roll between two sheets of baking paper and pay close attention to my lack of touching the dough through the construction phase. Watch the video in the blog post for all tips and easy construction.
ROLLING, FREEZING, STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE
  • Roll the dough between two sheets of good quality baking paper.
  • If the dough is sticky leave it to rest. However, it should never be sticky if the recipe has been followed using the recommended ingredients.
  • The dough or finished cooked pitas can be frozen.
  • The pita or dough can be stored in a ziplock bag in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • It is best to store the cooked pita pocket breads in the fridge. If left at room temperature may develop mould in a short time frame.

      If you are referring to baking powder Vince then yes. Just make sure it is a double acting non-bitter baking powder first.

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe! Delicious, indeed! I did try a different procedure which worked well for me. I happen to have an 8″ tortilla press, so I weighed my dough ball and divided by 10 to see how much each portion should weigh. I weighed each of the 10 portions, and pressed the dough between the small round non-stick paper sheets that work for the press: pressed, turned 180 degrees, pressed, turned 90 degrees and pressed a third time. The results were nearly perfect circles and just the right size for my 6″ bowl to seal the edges! I left the paper on top while sealing the edges, so the pita did not stick to the bowl, and peeled off the last paper when placing them on the pizza stone. Success! 😉

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Yay! That is so good to hear they worked for you Donna. Thanks for all the extra details and taking the time to leave a review.
