Whole Wheat Pita Bread

   This recipe came from Heavenly Homemakers

3 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 cup warm water

Stir together flour, yeast, and sea salt. Add honey, oil, and water, stirring until a nice dough forms. Knead the dough on a well floured surface for 4-5 minutes. (In other words: Mix dry ingredients. Add liquid ingredients. Stir well. Knead.)

Place dough back into the bowl, cover, and allow dough to rest and rise for about an hour.

Pull dough out of the bowl. Knead for about 30 seconds. Cut dough into eight equal parts.

Roll each into a circle, about six or seven inches in diameter. Place circles directly onto a baking sheet after rolling.

Allow the dough circles to rest/rise on the baking sheet while you heat your oven to 500°. Place baking sheet of pita circles into hot oven. Bake for 5-8 minutes – just long enough for them to puff up and brown slightly.
