Soft, fragrant, delicious... and many more epithets of this wonderful Greek cake, whose name is PITA! It is eaten with meat, poultry, vegetables. Wrap in it souvlaki (kebabs), gyros (finely chopped meat) and kebab, eat just like that and with zadziki. What can I say, I offer to cook with your own hands!

  1. To avoid questions and comments, I want to say that this type of pita, does not provide for the formation of a pocket when baking. Pita Giro is the most sought after and popular in Greece and translates as a round tortilla. Pockets are not popular here, at least in Athens.Products for pita is better to measure and weigh in advance.
