I made this pita bread using wheat flour and it turned out so good. Plus it is so healthy. You can make a huge batch of this and freeze them by placing wax paper or parchment paper inbetween them and you can warm it up in oven or microwave when you need them.
I stuffed this pita bread with this spinach egg scramble and it is delicious. You can stuff it with some sliced up veggies and drizzle some tahini sauce or hummus over them. It taste divine. Or you can spread it with some garlic mayo and stuff it with grilled chicken slices, YUM YUM..
