Homemade pitas good for sandwiches, pizzas, to stuff and more

There might be a lot of rise and rest time to make these pitas, but every minute of it is worth it when biting into a fresh, hot pita right off the griddle.

Why are pitas so much better than regular bread?

A wrap made on a pita feels far more fun and fancy than a sandwich, even with the same fillings.

Pitas are actually one of the world’s oldest breads, with origins dating back at least 4,000 years in the Middle East, according to Mashed, an online culinary publication. While there’s a general history of this flatbread, the exact origins are hard to trace because it goes 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 isolate of the grocery store.
