Yes sleeping in on the weekend is nice but have you tried waking up early and making a batch of fresh bread? No matter what type of bread, that smell is just amazing, especially when you pass by a bakery early morning, and you can smell that freshness! Now you can experience that at home!

It does take time to get used to making dough fast, especially if you've never done it before. But once you get the hang of it, it is simple and enjoyable.

Pita bread is basically the first type of bread I was introduced to, and what I grew up eating. You can eat it with literally everything, with butter, cheese, zaatar, meat, and even by itself.

So enough talking, let's start baking!
