Folded Pitas


These folded pitas make for the most perfect little sandwiches, ideal for evening snacks or packed lunches. They are also awesome to carry during road trips or picnics and make for a great Iftar starter. The best thing about these is that the folded pitas can be prepared ahead and frozen, then just warmed up and filled when needed. You can make these with plain flour or a combination of plain and wholemeal flour.
