Home Baked Pita Bread

I have always wanted to try to make pita bread.  After being in Israel, I REALLY wanted to make pita bread!   These were so easy to make--using the bread maker.  They tasted JUST like what we ate while in Israel!
Home Baked Pita Bread

1 1/4 cups water
1 teaspoon honey
3 cups unbleached flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast

In the bread machine pan, place ingredients in the order recommended by the manufacturer. In my case, that means liquids first, then dry ingredients with yeast last. Set on dough cycle. When dough cycle ends, remove dough to lightly floured surface.

Preheat oven to 450 °. Divide into 12 equal-sized pieces. Roll into balls. Roll each ball into a 5-inch circle and rest on floured kitchen towel. Continue process until all 12 pieces are rolled.

Place two rounds on lightly floured cookie sheet and bake for 2 minutes. Flip and bake another 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Do not brown. Dough will puff during baking.

Continue the process, allowing oven to reheat for another couple minutes in between batches.
