Pita Pockets

Create a Pita Pocket for your sandwich.

Skill: Beginning Prep Time: 20 Bake Time: 5 Servings: 12


8+ Rhodes Rolls (dinner, Texas, multi-grain, whatever kind you like)
Flour, for dusting


Thaw & slighlty
Rise as many rolls as you want pita pockets.
Make sure that you thaw them far enough apart that they don't stick to each other.
Preheat oven to 500˚F & lower your rack as far down as it will go. Place a baking sheet in the oven on the lowest rack as it preheats.
Roll each roll into about a 5" circle.
Cover the pita circles with plastic wrap. Allow rolled circles to rest for 10 minutes.  Once the oven & baking sheet are piping hot (heated for about 15 minutes) pull the rack out & quickly lay prepared circles flat onto the tray.
Shut the oven door.  And wait until the dough puffs up, about 2-5 min.
With tongs, GENTLY flip the pockets over & cook another 1-2 minutes or until browned on the bottom.  
Remove pita pockets from the oven with tongs onto a plate or into a basket & immediately cover them with a towel to trap the steam & keep the pockets soft & useable.
