Pita Bread – Rye


I have been trying to find out the best pita bread recipe.  This one takes at least 2 days to complete the product.

Using Peter Reinhart’s book.  1 day to prepare the soaker and biga and the next day to complete with the final dough.

I tried mine with dark rye flour.  A healthier product.

After abt 1 plus min, the dough in the oven started to rise from the sides first.

Looking at the cross-section…
