Tastiest and easiest Whole Wheat Pita

So, skip the mixer and just use a big bowl to start this dough. Once you can get it into a lump, push it outta the bowl and knead it. Give it love! It'll taste better!

Combine the following:
1tsp. Sugar,
1, 1/4oz pack active dry yeast
1 1/4 lukewarm h2O

Let rest for 10min after you give it a little stir.

Get out your wooden spoon! Or just flick on your mixer..but its a small amount of dough, so your hook might not catch.

Slowly add: 2c. Whole wheat flour
Then add:
1tbsp. Olive oil
2tsp. Salt

Add approximately 1 1/4-1/2 c all purpose flour
This is when the ball will start taking shape...
Then turn into floured surface and knead this dough is like taffy.
Set in lightly oiled bowl covered with a towel and let rise for 1 1/2-2 hrs until doubled.

Invert a pan in a 500 degree oven.

Punch dough down and turn back onto lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 8 pieces(or 4 for giant pita!) shape into balls. Cover and let rest for 20 min.

Roll out with rolling pin or old wine bottle into 7-inch circles.

Slap onto inverted pan and bake until lightly puffed with a bit if browning in the edges.
Wrap with a towel to keep warm.
