Pita Pocket Bread

I love pita bread!  It is easier than you think to make.  I really think you should try it!

Pita Pocket Bread

1 cup warm water
2 tsp yeast
1 Tbls honey

3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbls oil

You can add a little garlic and other spices for fun!

Mix together first 3 ingredients and let sit till frothy.
Add all remaining ingredients and knead for 5 mins.
Put in oiled bowl and let dough rise.  45mins till doubled.
Divide into 8 balls of dough(keep them covered) roll into flat rounds about 6" across.
Let the rounds rise till slightly puffy.
Bake in HOT oven 550 on bottom rack for 41/2 mins.
Note - Only a sudden blast of heat will make the pockets.  It is a good idea to start with 2 pita's on the sheet to make sure the oven is hot enough.
