Here's some great pita bread that I learned to make in class awhile back. It's great for sandwiches or for dipping into hummus or garlic paste. More on that later...
Have a great Monday!!!

1.38 oz. Active Dry Yeast
19 fl. oz. Water (100-110°F)
2 lb. 4 oz. Bread Flour
0.75 oz. Salt
3 fl. oz. Vegetable Oil
1. Dissolve the yeast in the water in the bowl of a mixer fitted with a dough hook. Add the remaining ingredients and mix on low speed 3 minutes. Scrape down the bowl. Add more flour, if necessary, to make a stiff dough. Knead the dough on high speed until it is smooth and comes away from the sides of the bowl, approximately 7 more minutes. The dough should reach 77°F.
2. Cover the dough and rest 15 minutes. Punch down the dough and rest another 10 minutes.
3. Divide the dough into 3-ounce pieces. Round and lightly oil each piece. Cover the oiled dough and bench rest 20 minutes. Flatten each dough ball into a 6-inch circle. Place the dough on paper-lined sheet pans. Proof the dough in a warm, dry place until doubled in size, approximately 25 to 30 minutes.
4. Bake at 475°F until puffed and lightly browned, approximately 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on racks to preserve the pocket in the dough.
*I made 1/2 of this recipe and it made 9 pita breads.
