Question: How to Cut Pita Bread

Everytime I try to cut pita bread, it falls apart. How can I cut my pita and keep it in one piece?

Answer: Pita bread is so versatile! There are so many things you can stuff into it IF you can manage to keep it into one piece while cutting it open!

There are three easy ways to cut pita:

  • a sharp serrated knife with pita flat against cutting board
  • a pizza knife (my personal favorite)
  • kitchen shears


If you happen to tear your pita into a bunch of pieces, why not make fattoush?
