Whole Wheat Pita Loaves

1 package active dry yeast
1 cup lukewarm water
1 Tbsp. sweetener of choice
1 1/2 cups enriched all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. salt

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sweetener and the all-purpose flour; mix well. Gradually add whole wheat flour and salt. Mix flour in well until the dough pulls away from the bowl.

Place dough on lightly floured surface and knead about 2 - 3 minutes. Divide dough into 8 balls; cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Flatten each ball and roll into a 5-inch round circle. (Be careful to avoid creases in dough or it will not separate after baking. Also, the rounds should not rise before baking --- if they do, flatten them again).

Arrange on lightly greased baking sheets and place on top oven shelf. Bake 8 - 10 minutes.

To serve, split one side open to form a pocket and fill with all types of salad or cut each in two and stuff each half with filling.

Makes 8 pitas.

I tried this Pita Bread yesterday. Two of mine had pockets (: but they were all very pretty and we toasted some and ate the rest with soup. There is only one left..
Thank you for the recipe
