Author Heidi @ Food Doodles


  • 3/4 C warm water
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tsp honey or sugar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 C + 2 tbsp whole grain spelt flour or 1 1/2 C whole grain hard wheat, plus more for kneading and rolling


  1. Place the warm water in a bowl. Sprinkle yeast over top and allow 5-10 minutes for it to soften.
  2. Stir in the honey, oil, salt, lemon juice and 1 1/2 C flour. When completely combined stir in the remaining 1/4 C flour. Flour a surface and turn the dough out and knead for 8-10 minutes until smooth. Divide the dough either into 4 or 12 and roll into balls, depending on the size of pita you'd like. Place on a floured surface, cover with a towel and let rest for 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 500 degrees and place a baking sheet or pizza stone in the oven to heat up as well.
  4. Roll out the dough balls on a well floured surface to 1/4" thick or about 4-5" in diameter for mini pitas. Let rest while rolling out the rest. When they are all ready, place as many in the oven as possible at a time(3-4 per baking sheet) .
  5. Bake till puffed up, 3-4 minutes. Remove from the oven and cover with a towel.
  6. Repeat with the remaining pitas.
  7. Cool pitas completely before storing in an airtight bag.
