Naming NotesPita or pitta (/ˈpitə/ or US /ˈpiːtə/)[1] also known as Arabic Bread or Lebanese Bread or Syrian Bread,[2][3][4] is a soft, slightly leavened flatbread baked from wheat flour that originated in the Near East,[4][5] most probably Mesopotamia around 2500 BC.[6] It is used in many Mediterranean, Balkan and Middle Eastern cuisines and resembles other slightly leavened flatbreads such as Iranian nan-e barbari, South Asian flatbreads, Central Asian naan, and pizza crust.

The first known mention of the word in English was in 1936.[7] The English word is borrowed from Modern Greek πίτα. These all probably come from the Byzantine Greek πίτα 'bread, cake, pie, pitta' (attested in 1108).[7] Some sources trace it to the Ancient Greek πίττα or πίσσα 'pitch/resin',[8][9] while others characterize this as "unlikely" and trace it to Latin picta 'painted', itself supposedly from Greek πηκτή 'congealed'.[10][11] Though the Modern Hebrew word pittāh is spelled like the Aramaic pittəṭā/pittā (which is related to Levantine Arabic fatteh), they are not connected historically.[7] Other hypotheses trace it to Germanic[12] or Illyrian.[13]

The word has been borrowed by Turkish as pide,[14] and appears in the Balkan languages as Serbo-Croatian pita, Romanian pită, Albanian pite, Bulgarian pitka or pita. In Arabic, the phrase "خبز البيتا" (pita bread) is sometimes used; other names are simply "خبز" 'bread' or "الخبز العربي" 'Arab bread' or "خبز الكماج" 'ekamj bread'.
