Pita Bread

Pita bread is a round, flatbread that is popular in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines. It is characterized by its unique pocket-like shape, which is created during baking. Pita bread is versatile and can be used to wrap sandwiches, as a base for dips and spreads, or served alongside grilled meats and vegetables.


Additional information


Pita bread is made from a simple dough consisting of flour, water, yeast, salt, and sometimes a small amount of sugar or olive oil. The dough is kneaded until smooth and elastic, then allowed to rise until doubled in size. After rising, the dough is divided into small portions, which are rolled out into thin circles. The circles of dough are then baked at a high temperature, causing them to puff up and form a pocket in the center.
The pocket in pita bread is created by steam, which forms inside the dough during baking. This pocket makes pita bread ideal for filling with various ingredients, such as meats, vegetables, cheeses, and sauces. It can also be used as a scoop for dips and spreads, or torn into pieces and used to scoop up food.
Pita bread can be made at home or purchased pre-made from grocery stores or bakeries. It is available in various sizes, from small cocktail-sized pitas to large ones suitable for stuffing with a generous amount of fillings.
