Really Rose's Pita Bread Recipe
Wanting fresh pita bread for dinner but tired of buying those over-priced, dried out pitas at the store, I knew it would be easy for me to make my own delicious pitas, and at a fraction of the cost.

I sprinkled the yeast over the hot water in a large bowl and stirred until it was completely dissolved. Then added the whole wheat flour and one cup of the unbleached flour and stirred for about one minute to activate the gluten in the flour and created a sponge. I let the sponge rest for about 10 minutes, then sprinkled the salt over the sponge and added the olive oil. I mixed in the salt and oil. I mixed in the remaining cup of unbleached flour until the dough was too stiff for me to stir, then turned it out onto a lightly floured surface and kneaded until it was smooth and elastic.
My dinner, one warm pita cut in half and stuffed with my favorite salad mixture, ham slices, a small amount of crumbled sharp cheddar, a little feta cheese and crumbled bacon with huckleberry dressing drizzled over it all.
Stored covered to use within a few days, or wrapped an frozen to use later, these pitas are so very much better than any I have ever purchased at the grocery store.
