Cut dough into 12 equal-size pieces. Roll each into and ball, then out into an oval shape. about 7-inches long.
Place on floured trays, cover with a cloth and leave in a warm place 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 475-degrees, Oil 2 baking sheets and place in the oven to heat. Place 3 pita breads on each baking sheet and sprinkle with water.

I can't resist eating while it is still warm with some feta cheese that partially melts from the heat of the pita. You will love them.
