1 package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup plus 2 tbs warm water (110-115) water
2 1/4 cups all-purpose wheat flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt

Preparation / Directions:

Add yeast and honey to warm water in a medium-size bowl; let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. Combine the fours and salt in a large mixing bowl. Pour yeast mixture into center and stir until dough can be gathered into a ball. Knead dough floured board until smooth. Place dough in a large, lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a damp towel and place in a dry, draft-free place until dough had doubled, 1 to 2 hours. Punch down dough; place on lightly floured board. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape into circles and place on nonstick cookie sheets. Allow to rest, covered with damp towel for 30 minutes. On lightly floured board, roll out each piece of dough to a circle, about 5 inches in diameter. Place on cookie sheets; let stand about 30 minutes. Bake on middle rack of preheated 500 oven for 5 minutes. Remove pitas from cookie sheets and let cool on rack. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. To serve, reheat wrapped in aluminum foil at 350 for 10 minutes.
