Stack of pita bread on wooden board

Flat bread, often seen wrapped around a gyros or souvláki. There are several kinds; the most popular are very flat round 'Arab style' Αραβική πίτα (abavikí píta) and long oval shaped Cyprus-style Κυπριακή πίτα (kypriakí píta), made with yeast and a pocket.

Βιτρίνα Πίτες (5MP)

Píta is also a general word any kind of savoury or sweet pie, or what in English would be a cake or sometimes even a paste.
