What is a pita?

 

A pita (also called pita bread) is a soft and delicious pocket-shaped bread. It originates in the Mediterranean region and the Middle East. Our Quality Pitas are baked in a brick oven at a high temperature to create their fluffy texture, and steam is used to create the pockets. After cooking, the pitas can then be eaten as sandwich bread or used for dipping. There are many health benefits to eating pita bread, especially as part of a diverse diet. Pita has been around for centuries and is a traditional food in much of the world. In fact, the flatbread that evolved into what we now call pita is the oldest variety of bread in the world, going back as far as 30,000 years. It continues to be a tasty and versatile bread and is now used in dishes all around the world.

What are the health benefits of pita?

 

The Mediterranean diet is regularly cited as one of the healthiest in the world. It isn’t a coincidence that pita plays a role in this way of eating! Pita, along with a diet rich in olive oil, legumes, fruits, and vegetables, makes for one of the most beneficial ways of eating you can choose. All varieties of pita are also good sources of vitamins such as thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), and folate (B9). These B vitamins are essential for good brain health.

 

The pitas that you taste from Quality Pita have all of these nutritious benefits while also appealing to your excellent taste. You can travel the Mediterranean and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a pita this downright yummy.

How should you eat pita?

 

Our pitas can be eaten in many different ways. They make an appetizing bread for dips, especially hummus. However, pita can also be eaten with dips such as spinach and artichoke, ranch or yogurt sauce, and French onion.

 

Quality pitas are, however, most commonly used as a sandwich bread. Their pocket shape makes them perfect for holding all manner of ingredients, from Mediterranean classics like falafel and chicken gyro to a traditional American hamburger. We recommend tahini sauce, tzatziki sauce, or hummus for some authentic flavor.

 

The breads from Quality Pita are available in many different varieties, including in a regular 5 inch size, a mini 2 inch size, and a 7" pizza size. We can even customize your pita size! Mini pitas are ideal for making yummy bite-sized appetizers. They are a hit at parties, especially with a spiced black bean hummus. The larger pitas can also be used to make an easy pizza at home. Just add pizza sauce, cheese, and any toppings of your choosing, and pop the pita in your oven for a few minutes for a delectable and easy pizza. In addition to pitas, Quality Pita offers Laffa and mini Laffa breads.
