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

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 8 servings


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


  • Thaw & slightly rise as many rolls as you want pita pockets.
  • Make sure that you thaw them far enough apart that they don't stick to each other.
  • 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.
  • Roll each roll into about a 5" circle.
  • 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.
  • Shut the oven door. And wait until the dough puffs up, about 2-5 min.
  • With tongs, GENTLY flip the pockets over & cook another 1-2 minutes or until browned on the bottom.
  • 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.
