Number of Servings: 8


    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


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

    So easy. Love that it only takes 45 start to finish. I'm going to make a quadruple batch and freeze them. Mine cooked for 7 minutes and were perfecto. - 2/7/11

  • As a beginner, very helpful and fun! My dough stuck a little on the ceramic plates I put it on to rise - does anyone put a little spray oil on the surface where they let the dough rise? - 9/23/15

  • This is the very first time ever I have made bread, so decided to start with this. Easy Peasy!!!! To the surprise of my friends I used the exact recipe, I am a notorious fixer... turned out super yummy. Next time I will brave adding some garlic and such. - 1/10/15
