My Favorite Low-Carb Pita Bread (and Recipe Ideas Using Pita Bread)

My Favorite Low-Carb Pita Bread is this Joseph’s Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pita Bread! These whole wheat pitas are something I eat sparingly, but but they come in handy for a quick lunch or dinner. They aren’t even sold in Utah, but I like them so much I buy a package of three from Amazon.com and store in the freezer.

In August of 2005 I visited Rhode Island, and discovered a low-carb pita bread that was so full of healthy ingredients and delicious that when I came home I wrote about Joseph’s Bakery Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread on my relatively-new food blog. I brought some of the pita bread home with me from that trip, but I couldn’t find them anywhere in Utah.

And I might have forgotten about them, except that other fans of the pita bread kept leaving comments on the original post asking where they could get this tasty and relatively low-carb pita bread! Although I checked regularly to find them, for years there was nowhere to order them online. But obviously that’s not the end of the story.

A few years after that one of my best food blogging friends was the lovely Lydia from The Perfect Pantry, who lived in Rhode Island, and she offered to send me some of my favorite low-carb pita bread, which was her own favorite as well. Meanwhile, someone left a comment letting me know the Joseph’s Bakery products were soon going to be available online. And then a few years later I was so excited to discover that I could buy Joseph’s Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas at Amazon.com. (affiliate link)

Since then I’ve been buying the three-pack from Amazon every couple of months and keeping them in the freezer. Joseph’s Bakery Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas are delicious, nutritious, high in protein and fiber, low in fat, and relatively low in carbs. (The regular size pita has 10 carbs, but 4 grams of fiber and 0 sugars for 6 net carbs. There’s also a mini size pita with even less carbs.) Of course this pita bread isn’t Keto or gluten-free, but for anyone who’s following a carb-conscious or low-glycemic eating plan, they’re perfect to stuff with something healthy and eat occasionally for a quick meal.

Here’s What I Make With Low-Carb Pita Bread:

Low-Carb Egg Salad in Pita
Low-Carb Egg Salad in Pita with Green Olives, Green Onions, and Dijon is tasty and quick to make, and green olive fans will love these. One pita cut in half and stuffed with egg salad is more than enough for a meal for me.

Fattoush Lebanese Salad

For years and years I’ve been a huge fan of this Fattoush Lebanese Salad with Sumac and Pita Chips and this is something I make every summer when I have fresh mint and parsley in the herb garden.

Low-Carb Lamb Shish Kabobs with Tzatziki Sauce

Low-Carb Lamb Shish Kabobs with Tzatziki Sauce are delicious with low-carb pita bread to wrap around the lamb as you eat it!

Middle Eastern Beef and Hummus Pita Rounds

Middle Eastern Beef and Hummus Pita Rounds do have some carbs in the hummus besides the Pita Bread, but you can get away with a pretty thin layer of hummus if you prefer. Or skip the hummus and eat the spicy middle eastern beef in side the pita bread for a different take on this tasty recipe.

Greek Dip or Salad

I got the recipe for this Amazingly Easy Greek Dip or Salad from my trainer Wendy, and it’s so tasty. When I took it to a party people ate it with a fork when the Pita Bread was gone, so that’s why I named it Greek Salad or Dip!

Spicy Avocado in Low-Carb Pita Bread

Easy Spicy Avocado in Low-Carb Pita Bread is seriously about as easy as it gets for something tasty to stuff into low-carb Pita Bread, but I’d love this for lunch any time I had an avocado hanging around.

Grilled Middle Eastern Turkey Burgers

And finally, please don’t let the very old photos stop you from making these Grilled Middle Eastern Turkey Burgers! These are so tasty and the herb-filled turkey burgers would also be delicious served in lettuce wraps if you wanted a bit fewer carbs.

About Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks:

I purchased Joseph’s Bakery Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas myself and although Joseph once left a comment on the blog, this company has no idea that I’m writing about their product. All items featured here are things I’d happily buy over and over, and because I want readers to know that my opinions are completely unbiased, I don’t accept review products from the many companies who offer to send them to me.

  1. I am enjoying the recipes you post of yours & others. The only complaint I have is, you never include the nutritional values for those of us who keep track of our macros. Some of the recipes I’ve gotten off your site that you posted from others sites that you share do include them. Just a suggestion, as that is why we are following a Keto/Paleo diet in the first place. I have a calculator on my cell to keep track but if I don’t have the nurtritional values to plug in it’s no use to us. Thanks & keep putting out those delicious recipes.

    • I wish there was an easy way for me to make that happen. This post talks about my efforts after I switched my blog from Blogger to WordPress and had to edit 2,000+ recipes. I am planning to add nutritional information, but not until the editing project is done.

      If you look after the recipe itself, I give two links (where it says “Nutritional Information”) for suggestions of two ways to get that information. That’s all I am able to do at this time.

  2. These can be found in shoprites nn. I buy them often. Curious why you say you use them sparingly (spairngly because?).

    A few comments about them. They appear to be good bang for the buck when it comes to bread choices however i still don’t believe that a whole one is only 60 cal when a regular pita is 180. The differences in nutrition don’t seem that great.

    I use these to make Iraqi sabich sandwiches which are a mouthful. These pitas work well with heavy fillings as long as you dont pocket them. Too flimsey

    • I use them sparing because I’m watching my carbs. So I enjoy these but wouldn’t eat them every day.

      I trust this company so I’m pretty sure the nutritional information wouldn’t be misrepresented.

  3. GREAT RECIPE!, WILL YOU DO A CRISPY CORN TOSTADA RECIPE MADE WITH CORN EXTRACT FLAVORING, COCONUT AND/OR ALMOND FLOUR, FIBER, ETC.., I REALLY MISS HAVING TOSTADAS.

    • Hi Kelly, thanks for the vote of confidence but I don’t think I am nearly a good enough baker to come up with a recipe that would taste like corn tortillas. Maybe try googling it to see if you find one?

  4. Thanks for the recipes. Here in Utah I buy the Josephs Pita & Lavash bread at Walmart. They are in the bread aisle usually on the bottom shelf. So glad I don’t have to order online anymore.

  6. Kalyn…so funny that I just came across this, I found those pitas once randomly at our Walmart and I loved them! I brought them home b/c of the ingredient list. I haven't seen them in my regular grocery store, so I am going to make it a point to go back and pick some up at Walmart soon. I didn't realize they made tortillas too!

  7. Daniel, great idea. Sounds delicious to me!

  8. This is going to sound funny but it is great. I take these pitas grill up chicken with taco seasoning and make awesome low carb, low calorie and high protein delicious soft shell tacos.

  9. Anali, I do hope you like them after that! And now I really want to try the lavash.

  10. Thanks for this post Kalyn! You totally influenced my buying last night. I had to do some shopping and read this post shortly before I left work. I hadn’t bought bread from the grocery store since December, because of my Homemade Bread Pledge.

    I was thinking that I wanted to buy something healthy and kind of different. I bought the flax, oat bran, and wheat pitas. I haven’t tried them yet, but I’m going to make a sandwich.

  11. I have only tried the Lavash and Pita Breads. The pita bread make excellent pizzas, while the Lavash Bread are great in making crackers.

    With the pita bread, I spray the bottom with no-stick spray and garlic powder. On the other side, I place the sauce, cheese and toppings. Preheat the oven to 390 and bake for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, I up the temperature to 415 for another 10 minutes. In 20 minutes, I have an excellent thin and crispy crust pizza.

    The crackers are great whenever I want something salty and crunchy.

  12. You should try the Josephs Lavash bread they have. It is so soft and delicious and has all the goodness too. Great for wraps.
    I get it all the time and my 3 year old eats it too. Put some hummus and veggies. Yum

  13. hmm lemme see if i could get these from some upscale supermarkets here in hong kong ^^ i wanna try your pita recipes

  14. Lydia, you are just the best!

    Sounds like I should try the lavash too. But first I need to eat my tortillas and pita bread (most of which are in the freezer.)

  15. I love these pitas! I found them at our local Wally’s a couple of years ago now–perfect for pizzas and with hummus.

    Though I must admit, Kalyn, I love their lavash even more.

  16. So happy to send you goodies from the East (Coast!) — hooray for products that reduce our carb intake without sacrificing flavor.
