Recipe Ingredients for Pocket Bread

1 tbsp. yeast
1 tbsp. honey
2 1/2 c. warm water
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. oil
7 c. whole wheat flour

Recipe Directions for Pocket Bread

  1. Dissolve yeast and honey in water. When bubbly, add salt, oil and 6 cups flour. Knead 5 to 10 minutes, adding more flour if necessary. Let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down and divide into 12 to 20 equal pieces, depending on how large you want the pitas. Roll each into a ball and roll out on a floured surface about 1/4 inch thick.

  2. Place circles on greased cookie sheets and let rest 30 to 45 minutes. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Just before baking, turn the pitas over. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, switching position of pans halfway through. The pitas should be puffed in the middle and only slightly browned. To keep them soft, place them inside of a paper bag to cool, or eat them warm.

  3. These freeze well and are great to have on hand for quick meals or bag lunches. Freeze wrapped in foil and thaw, still wrapped at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
