100% Whole Grain Pita Bread

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 10


  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tsp honey or agave
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups 100% whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp yeast


  • Warm water in microwave 1 minute on high. Add water to bowl of stand mixer. Add honey, olive oil, and flour. Add salt to the side of the bowl. Add yeast to the center.
  • Fit mixer with dough hook. Turn to speed 1 and let knead 5 minutes or until dough ball forms and cleans sides of the bowl. (Add more water, 1 Tablespoon at a time, if dough ball is too dry. Add more flour, 1 Tablespoon at a time, if dough ball is too sticky.)
  • Divide dough ball in half. Wrap one half in plastic wrap and set aside. Cut remaining half into 5 equal portions. Roll each portion into a flat circle, about 1/4 inch thick. Arrange circles on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rest 30 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough ball.
  • After they've been resting 15 minutes, add a baking stone to the oven and preheat oven to 450. Place baking sheet on stone and bake 10-12 minutes or until puffed and lightly golden. Remove from oven and repeat with the other baking sheet.
