Place all ingredients in bread pan according to manufacturer's recommendation, and select dough setting.
Turn the kneaded dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 8 pieces. Form each piece into a ball, tucking edges under. Cover and let dough rest about 10 minutes. With a rolling pin roll each piece from the center to the edge, into a 6- to 7-inch circle.
Cover dough with a towel and let rise for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Place 2-3 pitas on a wire cake rack, and place directly on oven rack. Bake for 4-5 minutes until puffed and golden.
Remove from oven and immediately place in a sealed paper bag or cover with a damp kitchen towel until soft.
Once softened, pitas may be split and filled. Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerater or freeze up to 2 months.
This easy, almost no-fail recipe makes the dough in the bread machine. All you have to do is shape and bake.
