pita

πίτα

Stack of pita bread on wooden board

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

Βιτρίνα Πίτες (5MP)

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