I recently tried making a pita sandwich type thing, naturally it didn't go anywhere near as well as it did in the link I provided. This is mainly due to the fact I couldn't cut open or separate the pita so that I could essentially 'stuff' it.
I am using pretty standard pita bread, nothing fancy, and I haven't cooked them or heated them up or anything (my guess is that that would help with the cutting) and it really bothered me as I was looking forward to a nice pita sandwich for lunch!
Does anyone have any good techniques or hacks that makes opening a pita up much easier?
I've cut the bread in half so my desired goal is to have two half pita sandwiches but alas, no luck. Below is an image of what I am aiming for.
I have tried:
- Pulling the two sides apart with my hands
- Pushing flat against a work surface and trying to slice open with a knife
Any new suggestions?
