         Pita or pocket bread, is a flat bread served throughout the 
        Middle East.  Can be used either as an accompaniment to meals, 
        stuffed to form sandwiches or cut into wedges, toasted to serve
 as 
        dippers.  Using whole wheat pita breads as a chewy crust for
 these 
        mini-pizzas provides an extra boost of vitamins, minerals and 
        fibre
