pita bread

I made pita bread for the first time. I used this recipe. It was very easy and from the beginning to end, I was done within two hours (including the rise time.) I used 2 cups unbleached white flour and 1 cup white whole wheat flour.

I used to avoid bread recipes that involved much kneading, but now I really like it. It's theraputic.

I used a trick to make the rising time faster: I turned on my oven, at the lowest setting, for a couple of minutes and then shut it off. I opened the door for a minute, then placed the bowl of dough on the oven rack. (You have to make sure the oven isn't very hot though - too hot makes the yeast cook!)
