I love Pita! I regularly like to have Pita with hummus as a regular snack. Also love a good gyro with lamb meat, lettuce, tomato, onion and tzatziki sauce. In fact, National Pita Day is in March each year, and it celebrates the dipping, scooping and wrapping of as many ingredients as possible into the delicious bread. A lot of people seem to love Pita.
Pita are round flatbreads made from wheat flour, common in the Mediterranean, Middle East, and neighboring areas. It includes the widely known version with an interior pocket, also known as Arabic bread.
In the UK, Greek bread is used in pocket versions, like the Greek Pita, and used for barbecues for a souvlaki wrap. In addition to different dips, one may stuff meats and vegetables into a Pita pocket to make a sandwich.
