    PaulaG's Note:

    This recipe is a delicious use of sourdough starter. Use to make gyros or stuff with hummus and an assortment of fresh vegetables. The rising may take a little while depending on temperature and how active the starter is. If you want to give the starter a boost, add 1 tsp commercial yeast to 1/8 cup of water and allow to bubble before adding to flour mixture.

      Excellent sourdough with a yeast option. Very tasty. I made a mistake when pan cooking one and flipped it. Don't do that. The others I baked in a 500F oven for 4 or 5 minutes. I assume pan cooking on one side would work well too.

      I chose to use half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour for the pitas, as my starter is half and half as well. These came out so much better than I expected! My first time making pitas, and my four-year-old helped. Only a few actually puffed up, creating their own filling space in the middle, but they are easily cut with a bread knife. I'll do this recipe again!

      I think the wheat was good, but family didn't care for wheat. I made it just the same with white flour and they came out great! I don't use commerical yeast so it was great to find a recipe for pita bread.
