Using pita bread, you can make many varieties of snacks & meals! It's wholesome & filling!

Pita Bread


2 tablespoons yeast
2 cups warm water
8 cups flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tablespoon salt

Dissolve the yeast in the water - add 1 tablespoon of the flour and let it stand until it gets bubbly.

Mix the 2 flours and salt in a large bowl. Add the yeast mixture & enough water to make a very stiff dough.

Mix & knead until smooth.

Cover and let rise until it's doubled in size.

Punch dough down and divide it into small round balls (about 3 inches).

Preheat oven to 525. Roll out the balls on a floured surface. Cook on a cookie sheet 1 at a time. Takes only a few minutes!
