My sister texted me a few weeks ago that I absolutely had to try Udi’s gluten free tortillas, so I headed over to Whole Food’s, but I couldn’t find them! I did, however, find this pita bread made by MyBread.
Texture is usually the hardest thing to get right in a gluten free bread. Even though it was frozen, I thought it looked like it would have authentic pita bread texture. And I wasn’t wrong.
Look at it, all crisp on the outside, moist and fluffy on the inside.
I honestly don’t think I would be able to tell the difference between this and a regular bread in a blind taste test. It really was the same thing.
The catch was the price. It wasn’t labeled on the shelf, so I assumed it would be around the same price as the other breads ($5-6/loaf) but it was $9, and for only 6 pieces of bread! I probably won’t be buying this again, unless I get some sort of mad pita craving.
Here’s the score:
Price: $9.00 – 1/5 (like I said, it’s just too high a price for bread)
Prep/cooking time: 2-4 minutes in the skillet – 5/5
Taste: moist & flaky, two things no other gf bread has managed – 5/5
Husband’s Approval: he couldn’t even tell it was gluten free! – 5/5
I’ve already had four of the six pieces of bread, so I’m going to be rationing the last two – at least it lasts for a long time in the freezer!
