How To Make pita pocket bread
In a large bowl, COMBINE all dry ingredients. ADD water. MIX thoroughly.
ADD more flour 1/2 c. at a time and KNEAD until firm
TURN out onto floured surface,
KNEAD for about 10 minutes, adding small amounts of flour to prevent sticking.
PLACE in bowl, and LET RISE until double.
REMOVE from bowl onto floured surface. PUNCH down, KNEAD briefly.
PULL off pieces of dough, and roll into balls. Size could be as small as a golf ball for “mini pitas”, or as large as a softball if to be used for pizza.
ROLL each ball out with a rolling pin until about 1/8th inch thick
Bread will not form pockets if thicker than this.
PLACE onto cooling rack, and place into preheated 500° oven for 2–3 minutes, just until bread forms pockets.
NOTE: Steam escaping pockets can be scalding!
****For Pita Chips:
SLICE whole wheat pita into triangles,
