    Jimijoe 43's Note:

    I use white flour in this recipe. It can be made with whole wheat flour instead if you prefer. Makes 3 8 inch pitas, with a few extra smaller pieces which are great for snacking.

      This was great tasting bread however the title suggested this was pita bread, not pita pocket bread. I was hoping for the first of the two. Now being a pocket bread, the flavor was fantastic. It had just a little hint of honey which was perfect! I used my bread machine, took it out when the dough cycle was over,punched it down and kneaded for about 2-3 minutes more. Next I divided it into 9 equal balls, floured them and rolled them out. Then I baked 5 minutes and flipped them, then baked another 5 minutes. Thanks for the recipe.
