The Growth of the Pita

I thought I would post one of my latest experiements.  The following is a  series of four pictures showing the growth of a local wheat pita.  If you have never made pitas, then you may not know that pitas actually make a pocket on their own by creating a hot, steamy bubble in the middle as they are placed in a high-heat oven.  Check out the action of these pitas...this whole process only took about 30-45 seconds!
Pita one...the bubble begins...

Pita two...growing... 

Pita three...still growing...

 

Pita four...full of hot air!  :)

 

 

Side note: can someone please tell the baker to clean the oven glass?  Thanks.
