Farmgirl's Pita Bread After Bernard Clayton

Introduction

My children won't eat store bought pita anymore! My children won't eat store bought pita anymore!
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1.5 cup white flour
    1.5 tsp salt
    1Tbsp white sugar
    2 tsp dry active yeast
    2 Tbsp olive oil
    1 cup water warmed to 105-110 F

Directions

Preheat oven to 500 F
1. Blend 1 cup of the flour with the rest of the dry ingredients
2. Add water, then olive oil and mix thoroughly
3. Add the rest of the flour 1/2 cup at a time kneading by hand by the end until all flour is worked through (about 5 mins kneading)
4. Divide dough into 8 equal parts and shape like a bun
5. Cover dough with a tea towel and let "rest" for approx 20-30 min depending on how warm your room is. (Warmer rooms need less time)
6. Roll each pita to 3/16" thick and place on individual squares of tin foil
7. Place 4 at a time right on the oven rack and bake for 5-7 minutes
8. When removing from the oven, stack them directly toogether immediately while hot so they stay soft, and cool stacked and wrapped in foil.
Note: Some may not puff, but YUM... eat them while hot or use them as crusts for quick mini pizzas or brush with olive oil and garlic and re-bake to make pita chips

  • This dough was sticky. I had to roll it with a lot of flour, but they were delicious. I think next time I will try just cooking them right on my pizza stone.
    The worst thing about this recipe- I never want to buy pitas at the store again. :) - 7/23/09

  • These were gone the day I made them. I'm just going to save my tinfoil squares for the next time. I didn't get them all thin enough to pouf - still great anyways. - 10/3/08

  • This recipe is excellent. The pitas are a bit small so I like to divide my dough into 6 instead of 8. Dividing the dough and letting it rest and preparing lots of little foil sheets takes up time but once you start baking it goes fast. I've made this recipe 3xs. My husband is picky and loves it. - 5/23/08
