Gluten-Free Pita Bread

Looking for a gluten-free pita option? We’ve got you covered! Chewy, supple and soft, this version is great for snacking, wrapping, dunking or dipping. Thanks to a simple base of cornstarch and water, these pitas retain the elasticity factor—the ultimate feat for all gluten-free bakers.



  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together 1/2 cup (125 ml) of the water and the cornstarch. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly until the mixture forms a firm paste. Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let cool.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the remaining water and the yeast. Let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, salt and oil with the cooled starch and yeast mixtures. Process until smooth. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turning to coat with the oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest in a warm place for 2 hours.
  4. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. On a surface lightly floured with gluten-free flour, using a rolling pin, roll out each piece of dough into a 6-inch (15 cm) disc.
  5. Heat a lightly oiled, non-stick skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is hot, cook one disc at a time for 2 minutes. Flip and continue cooking for 1 minute or until lightly browned. Set aside on a wire rack. Wipe the skillet clean with a lightly oiled paper towel before cooking each pita.
