Homemade pitas good for sandwiches, pizzas, stuffings and more

Why are pitas so much better than regular bread?

A wrap made on a pita is much more fun and sophisticated than a sandwich, even with the same fillings.

Pitas are actually one of the oldest breads in the world, with origins dating back at least 4,000 years to the Middle East, according to Mashed, an online food publication. Although there is a general history of this flatbread, the exact origins are difficult to trace because it dates back so far.

Early versions were made with the sourdough method, leaving about a pita’s worth of dough to ferment with yeast found in the air until it was time to make the next batch, according to Mashed. . Now we can use yeast found in the baking aisle of the grocery store.
