Juanita's Pitas

This recipe is adapted from a Greek cookbook called "The Olive and the Caper," that I checked out of the library. A note in the book says that half whole wheat flour can be used in place of half the all-purpose flour (but I don't substitute that much). This IS a tasty pita recipe - much better than store-bought. Note: Prep time includes rise time, but once you get past that, they only take about 5 minutes to bake.
