Looking for Rye Pita bread recipe


Would greatly appreiciate it if someone could provide me with a good rye pita bread recipe.

Next time you make rye bread, turn your oven up high, take some of the dough, roll it out thinly, let it rise a tad, then put it onto a stone or preheated baking sheet and see what happens.  I did that with some oatmeal bread dough just for the heck of it, and wound up with a decent oatmeal pita.
