Looking to make a low carb pita bread, anyone every tried??
in googling the above title I come up with this:
This is the google page with more options.
Hope it helps.
If you are looking for a pocket the answer is no. There are low carb pita recipes but they are really just a flat piece and won't have a pocket. Their base is either a high gum content (xanthan,psyllium,flax) or cheese based (fresh mozzarella and cream cheese). Both can be low carb but neither are low cal.
Thank you, will try this weekend. Good info and gives me ideas
I am interested in this topic as I bake for friends that want low carb bread products.
Please post success and failure with pics, if possible.
I will looking forward to the challenge that's for sure. Low carb has been a way of eating for 2 years and I'm always up for new things to try
Here is the first try, needs improvment but heck of a first try I'd say
Here is the best one it opened pretty good but needs a little work
The recipe is.. Again first try so keep this in mind1/2 cup Almond flour1/8 Tbs VWG1/8 Tbs Starter 1/8 tsp yeast (dry)2 oz HOT water1 tsp oil (i used coconut oil)3 Tbs flour (used 2 in the mix and one to powder to dough balls when flatting out)After mixing dry ingredents add the hot water mix well and let sit min of 10 mins before working. This gives the almond time to hydrateKneed dough for a few mins and try to get air into the mix then let rise for 2 hrs, after 2 hr rise cut into 3 dough balls and let rise again for 10 mins or so. Flaten into round pita shape about 1/4 in thick and cook using a VERY hot iron skilet with just a little bit of oil, keep flipping so it wont burn. Your done when both sides are brown and there is a little rise to the bread. let cool and enjoy
I have to believe that the VWG makes a big difference.
Did the bread bend without breaking?
Is it strong/flexible enough to hold a stuffing in the pocket or wrap around a filling?
How did it taste?
It was ok, didnt stuff much in it due to the size next time I will only make two dough balls not three to increase the size. But not bad I will be playing with the recipes and cook in a UUNI pizza oven for 800 + temps skillet ok but I want to try high heat next time to see if it puffs better
