Whole Wheat Pita Bread

Sure you can buy them ready-made...

But there is nothing in the stores that compare to homemade, fresh from the oven Pita bread!

I love the satisfaction of creating bread from a few simple ingredients ~ the aroma that wafts from the kitchen is heavenly. There is nothing like the taste and texture of fresh bread.

Pita bread is exceptionally easy to make, and it's always a surprising delight to watch the flat dough discs dramatically puff like hollow pillows during the first few minutes after being placed in the hot oven.

The recipe I followed this time is adapted from Beth Hensperger's excellent bread machine book~

The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook

I am a person who enjoys making bread from scratch, and by hand ~ but there are times when I gladly turn part of the bread-making process over to the dough feature on my bread machine.

The recipe makes 10, five to 6-inch pitas, perfect for portion control. :)

If you would like a printable copy of the recipe, you can find the recipe on my alternate recipe blog;
