Whole Wheat Pita Loaves

1 package active dry yeast
1 cup lukewarm water
1 Tbsp. sugar
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 sugar 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 bagain). 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.
