Pita, or the pocket-bread, is one of the many Mediterranean-flat breads and the Middle East, with its unique cavity or pocket inside the bread. Maded in a very hot oven, heated carbon dioxide and water vapor raise the middle of the dough to the ball. When it comes out of the oven, the bread resumes, but the cavity remains in the center of the bread, which is filled with free-choice additives such as meat, salad, etc. For filling, the pita can be split from one of the longer edges, leaving the other long edge together. Pita should be kept in a sealed package so that they do not dry. Pitat is also served as a side dishlike bread.
