There are so many different kinds of pita bread available in the grocery store these days. If we’re making pizza or cutting them into wedges we like the Greek pita bread. It’s softer, thicker, and doesn’t have a pocket. These also work well as a wrap. However, traditional pita bread works great too! And it has a handy pocket for stuffing.
