Whole wheat pita can be expensive, but it's so easy to make that there's just no reason to pay more than you should.


2 1/2 cups warm water
1 packet Active dry yeast
1 Tablespoon honey
2 cups whole wheat flour
3 cups Unbleached white flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Olive Oil


Stir flours together with salt and set aside. Add yeast to 1 cup of warm water and stir until dissolved. Mix in 1/2 cup of flours and let stand until bubbly.

Make a well in the center of the flours and pour in the yeast mixture. Start mixing together and add the remaining warm water. Stir well until combined and knead for 5-10 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic.

Coat a bowl with the oil and add the dough - turning over once to coat both sides with oil. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm spot until doubled in bulk.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F and place a cookie sheet into the oven to heat as well.

Punch down dough and divide into 12 equal pieces. On a well-floured surface, roll each piece of dough into a 6 inch circle. Let stand for 10 minutes. Taking turns, place each pita onto the preheated cookie sheet and bake for 4-5 minutes. Turn over once and continue baking until the pita puffs up. Remove from oven and push down gently with a wooden spoon to flatten out. Continue until each pita is baked. Let cool and store in plastic bags.

I looked closely at the enlarged photo of the pita and it looks so much nicer than the ones I have seen in the store. the recipe is uncomplicated which is a plus and my Joe would love a tuna salad on this bread.

I was floored at how easy they were - really. The kids liked to stand by and watch them puff up in the oven. Fun!

Freshly baked pita must be heaven on earth. I've never baked it myself but now I know how. Thanks for this concise and clear recipe, Anniepooh. :-)
