Directions:
Preheat pizza stone to 500 degrees on center rack of oven.

In the Bosch with dough hooks:

Mix gently. Continue to add enough whole wheat flour to gather the dough into a soft ball. Keep dough very soft (bowl on bosch will not be clean) Knead until gluten develops about 8 min. on speed 2.

Place dough on an oiled surface. Cut and weigh dough into 4 oz. pieces: Roll each into a ball. With a rolling pin, roll each piece into a 6 to 8 in. circle, lightly dusting with flour. Careful DO NOT roll off the edges of the dough or there will not be a pocket.

Place on a parchment liner and cover with a dry towel. Allow to rest for 15 minutes (My mom didnít do that and it was fine).

Place 3-4 pita breads on the stone and bake 3-4 minutes. Remove from oven and place in a plastic bag (5 minutes). Remove from bag and allow to cool before packaging and freezing. Make 9 pitas.
