How to Make Whole Wheat Pita
Hi guys, Greyson Ferguson here with About.com. Today we are making whole wheat pita bread.
Whole Wheat Pita Bread Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of active dry yeast
1 teaspoon of sea salt,
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour and
about 1 cup of water for mixing
In a large mixing bowl, sift one cup of whole wheat flour. This gives you about half a cup once finished. Add in one and one half cups of unsifted whole wheat flour, the sea salt, ground flax seed and active dry yeast.
Mix Water with Whole Wheat Flour
Pour the water in slowly. You want the dough stiff, yet still dry, so the entire cup of water may not be necessary. Kneed the dough together until smooth. Once smooth, roll the dough into eight equal sized balls. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees.
Flatten Pita Bread Dough and Bake
Flatten each ball down into a circular disk and place each back onto the baking sheet. Bake the pita bread at 500 degrees for six minutes. Allow the pita bread to cool for a few minutes, then cut each piece into four sections and serve with your favorite dip.
