The whole wheat pita bread are similar to Indian roti. Just that they are made using yeast so, they get fluffy on baking. When cut into two, these oblong breads are opened to make pita pockets. Pita pockets can be stuffed with various ingredients like hummus, pickled vegetables, falafel etc,. to make wholesome starters.

You can even cut pita bread into long strips, brush with herbed butter and bake them to make lip-smacking Herbed Pita Strips . Lavash is another Mediterranean delight made by baking plain flour triangles till crisp.
