Whenever asked what product is thought to be missing from the thousands of available gluten-free products, my number one response is always gluten-free pita bread. In my 13 years on the gluten-free diet finding out about GFL Foods, Inc. gluten-free pita bread made my diagnosis. Gluten-free pita bread is one product that this Examiner has truly missed and is thrilled it has become available in the gluten-free market.
Rami Aharon, owner of GFL Foods, Inc., set out to create a gluten-free pita when his son was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. After several attempts, they finally created what they considered to be the ‘best ever gluten-free pita’ and this Examiner agrees.
These dairy free and all natural gluten-free pitas come in a package of six and must be stored in the freezer until ready to use. To prepare, just pop one in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and then top or fill with the filling of your choice. These pitas taste just like the real thing with a great taste and texture and are easy to split apart without experiencing any crumbling.
My favorite way to enjoy the gluten-free pita was to cut it up and serve it with fresh hummus. My family also enjoyed filling them with tuna fish, chicken salad, egg salad and fried chicken nuggets. Even my daughter enjoyed filling them with scrambled eggs and cheese for a quick breakfast.
These pitas can be purchased online for $9 per package plus shipping. While this might seem a little cost prohibitive to some, this is a great price for a product of this quality. This is one product that will always be in my freezer.
Ingredients: gluten-free flour, salt, sugar, yeast, baking powder, vegetable oil, and apple cider
