[Caution:  This recipe is still under construction--steal at your own risk!]

Always on the lookout for new recipes, I ran across this Pita recipe.  Sadly it was made with yeast.  So, I converted it to sourdough just cuz I'm an ornery cuss!

Mix together culture, flour, water, and salt.

Using some flour, knead until smooth (about 5 minutes).

Divide into six balls and knead a bit more until each is smooth and elastic.

Flatten each to 1/4" thick and 4-5 inches in diameter.  Cover and let rise until doubled.

Place top-side down on a cookie sheet.  Bake at 500 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until light brown.
