Bread Machine Whole Wheat Pitas

Author: Toni Anderson


  • 3 cups flour used whole wheat
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons yeast
  • 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups water roughly at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • Add ingredients to your bread machine as directed in the manual. For my machine I add all the wet ingredients first and then the dry ingredients, adding the yeast last.
  • Set your machine to the dough setting.
  • After the machine has finished the dough cycle your dough is ready to be shaped into balls. I actually doubled this recipe, so I have twice as much dough in my machine as the recipe would normally make.
  • Take your dough and divide it into eight pieces and roll with your hands into balls. They will be roughly the size of a racquetball.
  • Cover with a damp towel and let them rest for about 20 minutes.
  • While the dough is resting preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Make sure whatever you will be baking your pitas on is in the oven during the preheat cycle. You want to put your pitas on a hot surface when you are ready to bake them.
  • After 20 minutes roll out the balls into circles.
  • Place pitas on the hot stone or cookie sheet and bake for about 5 minutes.
  • The pitas will puff up in the oven while baking.
