MIDDLE EAST/MEDITERRANEAN: Wow. Pita is hard to make. Making the dough is easy enough, with a stand mixer, and a pleasure to work with. Getting them to puff up to create the pocket is a different matter, and after lots of experimentation, I settled on the stove top method rather than using the oven.
