A pita sandwich is a type of sandwich that is made with pita bread. Pita bread is a type of flatbread that is popular in the Middle East and in many Mediterranean countries. It is made from a dough that is made from flour, water, and yeast. The dough is then rolled out and baked.
Pita bread has been around for thousands of years. The first recorded mention of pita bread was in the Old Testament of the Bible. In the book of Exodus, the Israelites are instructed to bake unleavened bread, which is likely what pita bread was.
Pita bread became popular in the United States in the 1970s. It was introduced by Middle Eastern immigrants who were looking for a way to make their native cuisine more accessible to Americans.
