This is the very best ever healthy Einkorn pita bread recipe. Plus I have several links to recipes you can make to eat with this great clean eating pita recipe.
We have been loving pita bread lately, so today we give you a Clean Eating spelt and einkorn pita bread recipe. Pitas can be great with some garlic and spread, or a good hummus recipe. It can also go well with a meal or as the bread for a sandwich. Whichever method you choose to eat your pitas, it is crucial to have a good recipe that fits within your lifestyle. This pita recipe is great for a Clean Eating lifestyle.
This recipe took a few rounds to get right, but I found that I liked the combination of spelt and einkorn better than just spelt by itself. I found that baking the pitas with the dryer side (the side that had been up, while resting) up resulted in a flatter, more bubbly pitas, but when I flipped them first before baking they puffed up quite nicely.
My children love it when I make pitas because they get so excited when they get all puffy and they think it's really cool to put food in the middle of the pita. Oh, to be a kid again . . .
These pitas would go wonderfully with our Best Classic, Smooth Clean Eating Hummus Recipe, it is a very smooth recipe and tastes great. We also have a for you to make with this pita bread. They would be good with this Vegan Baba Ganoush Recipe also.
What do you want to use your pita for? Will you make Tzatziki chicken, a Greek gyro, a pizza or dip it in a garlic sauce? Comment below - we would love to hear your favorite ways of eating pitas. And enjoy the new recipe! We have new ones coming every week!

- 2 ½ Cups Einkorn Flour *
- ½ Cup Light Spelt Flour *
- 1 ½ tsp Real Salt *
- 1 Package (2 ¼) Yeast
- 1 Tbl Honey
- 1 Cup + 2 Tbl Warm Water
- Combine the einkorn flour, spelt flour, salt, and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.
- Mix the honey and warm water together.
- Mix in 1 C. of the warm honey water with the dry ingredients on low speed. Slowly add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until a dough forms. Dough shouldn't be sticky, but not too dry, either. You may or may not use all of the water. If you add a little too much, add a little more einkorn flour until it is not sticky.
- Dust your work surface lightly with einkorn flour and knead the dough for 10 minutes, or until pliable and springy.
- Cut the dough into 12 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
- Using a rolling pin, roll each ball into a small round, about ¼" thick.
- Place dough rounds on 2 parchment lined baking sheets. Cover with a towel and let rest in a warm location for 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Place a baking stone or baking sheet(upside down) in the preheating oven.
- When the oven is ready, Place 2-3 dough rounds at a time on the hot baking sheet or stone, flipping them over so that the sides that were down while resting are now up. This will help them puff.
- Let bake for 2-3 minutes, or until puffed and lightly golden brown in spots.
- Remove and repeat with the remaining uncooked pitas.
- Store in an airtight container.

They look yummy and nice and puffy. Does that mean they are actually pockets that I can cut in half and stuff for a sandwich?
I have used this recipe several times. It’s is wonderful. While preparing for postpartum and baby #4, I made a double batch. In the chaos of the day, I was too tired to roll out each round, and instead let the second half of the dough rise in the mixing bowl. I then buttered a bread pan, did a 4 sided fold to the middle, and placed it in the bread pan to rise for another 30 min. Baked at 375 for 40 min. This is now my go to einkorn loaf bread recipe. It’s the best, I’ve tried half a dozen yeast and sourdough recipes, and this is hands down the winner for chewy, springy, sliceable einkorn bread. Thank you, my freezer is now being filled with sliced loaves as we wait for baby to arrive. God bless you and your family.
They look delicious!
I have looked for Einkorn Flour but i have not have any luck, I live in a small city in Canada, so my options are limited, Is thee=re any other flour it can sub Einkorn Flour with ?
Thank you 🙂
I haven't tried any other type of flour. I can't get einkorn flour where I live either so I buy it on jovial.com.
Erika, Cheapest was is to order 10 lbs of Jovial einkorn from Amazon if you are a prime member and don't pay shipping. I have it on subscribe and save with other products so I get an additional 15 % off.
Could I just use 3 cups einkorn flour and skip the spelt?
Yes, you could. Just use a little less water because einkorn flour gets way too sticky if you substitute equally with spelt and/or regular flour.
We love pitas and hummus. Thanks for the recipe!
