Handle with care while rolling and transferring. Tears or creases cause them not to puff up while baking. Avoid overbaking-they will turn crisp and brittle.

3 cup Wheat Flour, White, All-purpose, Enriched, Bleached

Recipe Directions for Pita Bread Recipe

  1. Place all ingredients in bread pan, select Dough setting and start. When dough has risen long enough, machine will beep. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently roll and stretch dough into 12" rope.

  2. With a sharp knife, divide dough into 8 pieces. Roll each into a smooth ball. With a rolling pin, roll each ball into a 6 - 7" circle. Set aside on a lightly floured countertop. Cover with a towel. Let pitas rise about 30 minutes until slightly puffy.

  3. Preheat oven to 500F. Place 2 or 3 pitas on a wire cake rack. Place cake rack directly on oven rack. Bake pitas 4 to 5 minutes until puffed and tops begin to brown. Remove from oven and immediately place pitas in a sealed brown paper bag or cover them with a damp kitchen towel until soft. Once pitas are softened, either cut in half or split top edge for half or whole pitas. They can be stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for several days or freezer for 1 or 2 months.

  4. Avoid using too much flour while rolling them out. Keep unrolled balls covered to prevent drying out.
