Description

Don’t these look delicious? They taste delicious! Someday there needs to be a computer with a button that you could push and it will pop out the food that you want to taste. Wouldn’t that be nice? Or TVs with smellovision? Or when you’re watching FoodNetwork, you could push a button on your remote and someone would deliver the food you want?

Wouldn’t that be swell? I guess I should stop day dreaming now. On to the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey Or Agave
  • 2 cups Warm Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 3 cups Whole Wheat Flour

Preparation

Combine the yeast, honey or agave, warm water, and salt. Then mix flours together in a bowl. Add four of the six cups of flour to the liquid ingredients. Put the fifth cup of flour on a flat surface and knead the dough into that flour. Knead as much of the sixth cup as possible into the dough until a medium stiff dough is formed. Put in an oiled bowl in a warm place for one hour to let rise. Punch down and divide into 12 similar-sized dough balls. Place on a lightly floured surface and cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

Heat oven to 450F. Flatten 2 dough balls to 1/4″ thick and place on a greased baking sheet on the bottom rack for 5-7 minutes. Then put them under the broiler until browned on top. Repeat until all dough is used.

These look great! Are they easy to split apart into a pocket? Either way, can’t wait to make them!

When I told my mom I was planning on making pitas, she sort of scoffed and said she had never had any luck making pitas before; they never had pockets. But these were so easy and perfect! They all puffed and had great pockets! I didn’t end up using the broiler for the last part. I baked them for 6 minutes each, flipping at the 3 minute mark, which worked great. Everyone loved them, and the best part is that the recipe makes enough so there are some for the next few days! Thanks for a great recipe!

Easy to make and tasty. Mine puffed up nicely to make great pockets. They even got nice and golden on the outside by using the bottom shelf in my oven and flipping the pita so both sides browned evenly.

I made these last night and just tried one for lunch (stuffed with turkey, cheese and veggies)- So delicious!!! Mine didn’t split apart super easily, but I always have trouble with store-bought ones too (perhaps they just don’t like splitting for me??). Will definitely make again!
