Place all ingredients in the pan of your bread machine. Select the dough setting. Once the cycle is complete, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently roll and stretch the dough into a 12 inch rope. With a sharp knife, divide the dough into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a smooth ball. With a rolling pin, roll each ball into a 6 or 7 inch circle. Set aside on a lightly floured surface. Cover with a towel and let rise at least 30 minutes or until they are slightly puffy. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Place 2 or 3 pitas on a wire cooling rack. Place rack directly on the oven rack. Bake pitas 4 to 5 minutes or until puffed and tops are just beginning to brown. Remove from oven and immediately place pitas in a sealed brown paper bag or cover them with a damp towel until soft. Continue process until all pitas have been cooked. Once pitas have softened, you may cut them in halves or just the tops.
The pitas can be stored in a storage bag and refrigerated for several days or in the freezer for 1 to 2 months.
