Pita bread is an even better invention than sliced bread. It is no wonder that this round pocket bread has been a staple of the Middle East for 4,000 years. In fact, pitas have been both a bread and a utensil throughout the Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean serving the function of loaves of bread in wheat centric areas of Europe, Africa and Asia.
It is a rather simple bread that could be made with limited technologies. Still, the possibilities to pack, dip or wrap a pita with are almost limitless.
