It’s that time again, when I get to make something fun & delicious using Rhodes® Rolls! Since this month is about being healthy, I made some delicious Pita Pockets that could not be any easier. All you have to do is roll out a Rhodes® roll & bake it.

These are seriously the coolest! They are fun to watch puff up in the oven & they open right up to fill with your favorite sandwich toppings. I used these pita pockets for my favorite turkey sandwiches. My kids like to keep them flat & add sauce & cheese on top for a quick pizza in the oven or microwave. You can also cut them up into triangles, bake them until they are toasty & use them for pita chips to dip in hummus. So many variations! They should even work with Rhodes®’s Mulit-Grain, Cracked Wheat, or 100% Whole Wheat Texas Rolls if you are trying to be super healthy. Have you made pita pockets? You should!

Pita Pockets

Pita Pockets

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 8 servings


  • 8 + Rhodes Rolls (dinner, Texas, multi-grain, whatever kind you like)
  • Flour, for dusting


  1. Thaw & slightly rise as many rolls as you want pita pockets.
  2. Make sure that you thaw them far enough apart that they don't stick to each other.
  3. Preheat oven to 500˚F & lower your rack as far down as it will go. Place a baking sheet in the oven on the lowest rack as it preheats.
  4. Roll each roll into about a 5" circle.
  5. Cover the pita circles with plastic wrap. Allow rolled circles to rest for 10 minutes. Once the oven & baking sheet are piping hot (heated for about 15 minutes) pull the rack out & quickly lay prepared circles flat onto the tray.
  6. Shut the oven door. And wait until the dough puffs up, about 2-5 min.
  7. With tongs, GENTLY flip the pockets over & cook another 1-2 minutes or until browned on the bottom.
  8. Remove pita pockets from the oven with tongs onto a plate or into a basket & immediately cover them with a towel to trap the steam & keep the pockets soft & useable.
