Whole Wheat Pita Bread
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon Himalayan crystal salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup warm water
In a large bowl, combine the water and yeast. Let it sit for a few minutes. Stir in the remaining ingredients until a dough is formed. Dust your working surface with flour and knead dough until smooth. Place dough back in bowl and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Keep at room temperature until doubled, about 1–2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 500° F when dough is doubled.
Once the dough has doubled, dust your working surface with flour and make 8 medium sized balls with your dough. Flatten each ball into roughly 6 inch circles at ¼ inch thick. Cover the circles and let them rest for 10 minutes.
Place in the oven for 8 minutes or till puffed up and light brown. Your pita bread is ready to eat! Enjoy!
