Homemade Whole Wheat Pita or Flatbread


Since my family finally made the switch to fresh milled wheat {I bought a mill and I guy whole wheat berries} I have been converting some of my most loved recipes to whole wheat.  So far, I’ve made baguette {still working on this one}, loaf bread with hazlenuts {this one is a winner!  Recipe coming soon.}, tortillas, biscuits, and now pita.

My original recipe called for all purpose flour.  They are delicious with all purpose flour, but even with this white flour, the pitas puff up only about 1/3 of the time.  Its fine though.  You end up with a really delicious flatbread if the pitas don’t puff up.  Either way, you end up with a product MUCH better than store bought pita or flatbread.

It isn’t as difficult to  make as it sounds and actually, I made it for dinner after work the other night…so it isn’t out of the question to make during the week.  It takes about an hour and20 minutes to make and one hour is just wait time – while you are waiting on the dough to rise.  It is during the rise time that I usually prep the rest of the dinner and start a load of laundry! :)

If you haven’t’ made a lot of homemade bread in the past, this one is fairly simple and would be a good one to start with.

  1. Thanks I will give them a try! Have you tried bagels since you have switched to whole grains ? They are easy and so good! When I use rye the dough is sticky and harder to work with. Enjoy your journey !
