Pita Bread

Great for sandwiches! Love them.

2 cups warm water
1 Tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoon yeast
2 Tablespoon dough enhancer (optional)
4 cups white wheat flour (I mix 2 cups flour with 2 cups whole wheat flour)

In a bowl combine the yeast with warm water. Let rise about 5 minutes.

Then, mix all ingredients together adding yeast mixture last gently. Knead until smooth and elastic. About four minutes. On floured surface, roll out dough into golf ball size balls. Roll each ball into a 6 to 8 inch circle. Place on parchment liners to rest. Cover with a clean towel. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Bake 3-4 pitas on a pizza stone for 3-4 minutes. Remove to cooling rack for five minutes.

If you do not have a pizza stone, a baking sheet will work fine.
