What is a Pita Bread?
Pita or pitta is a round pocket bread widely consumed in many Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. Pita is now the western name for the Arabic bread called khubz (ordinary bread), other breads of Arab or Egyptian, or kumaj (a Turkish loanword properly meaning a bread cooked in ashes), all baked in a brick oven. It is slightly leavened wheat bread, flat, either round or oval, and variable in size. The "pocket" in pita bread is created by steam, which puffs up the dough. As the bread cools and flattens, a pocket is left in the middle.

Where does it come from?
Well according to Wikipedia.... The tenth-century Arab cookery book, Kitab al-Tabikh includes six recipes for khubz, all baked in a tannur, which is like the modern tandoor oven. Historians believe its history extends far into antiquity, since flatbreads in general, are among the most ancient breads, needing no oven or even utensil for their baking. In Israeli cuisine, it is the custom to eat almost everything in a pita, from falafel, lamb or chicken shawarma and kebab, omelettes such as shakshouka (eggs and tomatoes) and hummus and other salads.
