Toasted Pita Triangles:
Toast pita bread in the oven or under a broiler. Cut into triangles with a knife or pizza cutter, and serve with dips like hummus or baba ghannouj.
Use Pita as a Spoon:
Pieces of pita can be used as a spoon for bean dishes like ful medammes, or for finely chopped salads like tabouleh. This is a fun way for kids to eat!
Throw some sauce, cheese and your favorite pizza toppings on pita bread and bake in the oven until cheese is melted. This is similar to english muffin pizzas.
Toasted Pita Bread:
Toasted in the toaster or oven, pita bread can make a more filling alternative to regular toast. Spread jam, butter, hummus, or your favorite spread for a light breakfast or snack.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Pita:
These are great for kids who don't like crusts. Spread the peanut butter and jelly inside the pocket. You can also microwave the sandwiches for 15-30 seconds for a warm sandwich.
Turn Your Salad into a Sandwich:
Pita bread has a pocket for a reason - to hold food! Fill a pita pocket with your favorite salad and veggies. You can also include strips of meat like steak, chicken or lamb. Tahini makes a great sauce for a pita pocket sandwich.
Pita Bread Hot Dogs:
Instead of using traditional hotdog buns at your next cookout, wrap the hotdogs in a small pita bread. Pita can also be wrapped around kofta, a delicious food with ground beef and herbs.
Use Pita Instead of White Bread:
Grilled cheese, sloppy joes, submarine sandwiches are all tasty on pita bread. Wrap them or fill them, they make a very nice alternative to white bread.
