Pita Bread


In a bowl combine 1 cup warm water, yeast and sugar and stir to dissolve.

Add in the whole wheat flour and whisk together.

Let the bowl sit in a warm place for 15 minutes until it begins to froth.

Add salt, oil and all of the remaining ingredients and work on low speed with a dough hook in the mixer for about 4 minutes until smooth.

Let the dough rest and double in size for about 1 hour.

Portion out the balls into about 10 pieces and begin to roll them out into rounds.

Place the griddle tray on the flat side in the air-o-convect combi oven while it preheats to 530°F.

Add the rolled out dough to the tray in the air-o-convect combi oven with 30% humidity and cook for 4 minutes.
