The Internet has done a lot to revolutionize the world, democratizing the access to information so everyone on the planet can become fluent in whatever particular subject they desire. It’s far reaching: from politics to economics, from automobiles to fashion. But an underrated aspect to the deluge of data jetting across the web is all the info on health and diet. Now anyone can transform their lives – what they do and what they consume – in order to transform their bodies. Now, instead of soda people are drinking zero calorie vitamin waters. Instead of white bread, people are eating pita bread. To help that process along, we’ve prepared six great pita and flat bread recipes that will make those New Year’s Resolutions seem easier than tofu cake.
Jalapeño Popper Pizza
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Whisk garlic, cream cheese and ranch dressing in a small bowl. Then, spread on top of pita bread as if it was pizza sauce. Top your pizza with sliced jalapeños, diced chicken, sliced jalapeño, and then cheddar cheese. Throw in the panko bread crumbs with the butter until they are covered evenly. Now, sprinkle that mixture over the cheese. Bake for 7-10 minutes then enjoy.
Toasted Pita Crisps
First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Then slice 4 pita breads into 4 triangles each. Separate every piece into 2 halves at the fold. Arrange them on a baking sheet with the rough side up. Top lightly with cooking spray or oil. Finally, bake until crisp for 8 to 10 minutes.
Bean and Pita Salad
Preheat oven to 400°F. Then place Klosterman Baking Company pita pieces on a large baking sheet. Bake them until they’re crisp. Now, mash garlic and salt into a paste. Put that paste into a bowl and add lemon juice and ground cumin. Whisk them to blend. Add oil while you continue to whisk then season with some pepper. Finally, place cucumber, tomatoes and beans in a serving bowl. Add the toasted pita, some lettuce, feta, parsley, mint and the dressing and mix. Enjoy.
Curried Chicken Pitas
Combine curry powder, mayonnaise and yogurt in a large bowl. Add chicken, pear, celery, cranberries and almonds; toss to combine. Fill each pita half with 1/2 cup sprouts and 1/2 cup chicken salad. Serve it up.
Italian Flat Bread
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place flat bread on greased baking sheet. Combine the olive oil, garlic, salt and half of one rosemary. Place onion slices and sliced tomatoes on the flat bread. Spread the olive oil mix over the onions and tomatoes. Sprinkle the other half rosemary on the flat bread. Bake for 12-15 minutes, then slice and serve.
Garlic Cheese Flat Bread
In a small bowl of warm water, sprinkle yeast over the surface and wait to dissolve. In a larger bowl, stir sugar, salt and flour together and pour in the yeast mixture with olive oil. Then, beat the dough until it is stiff enough to separate from the sides of the bowl. Cover and let stand for 30 minutes. After, take the dough and roll it onto a greased baking sheet. Then sprinkle with mozzarella, parmesan and garlic powder. Finally, bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and serve.
