Recipe Ingredients for Whole Wheat Pita Bread

3/4 cup 1 % milk
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp active dry yeast

Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Pita Bread

  1. add ingredients according to manufacturers directions. Select dough cycle and press start.

  2. After cycle is complete, let dough rest for 10 minutes.

  3. Divide dough into seven equal portions and shape each into a smooth ball. Place the balls on a lightly floured work surface and use a rolling-pin to roll each ball into a 6 inch circle. Cover the circles and let them rise for about 30 minutes or until they puff slightly.

  4. Place 2 to three dough circles on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in an oven at 450 degrees for about 3 minutes, turn the dough once, then bake for an additional 3 or 4 minutes, or until the bread is puffed and the tops are beginning to brown.

  5. Remove the pita rounds from the oven and let them cool on a rack, and repeat with the remaining dough circles. You should end up with 7 to 10 pita rounds.

  6. To serve, cut the pita in two and fill the inside with the filling of your choice, or just wrap the pita around the desired filling.
