Laffa is a Middle Eastern bread, thicker and chewier than pita bread. Because of its thickness, it is used to wrap meats like kebabs and shawarma. It is also used to scoop up hummus. Pita is a yeast-leavened flatbread. When being cooked it puffs up and forms a pocket that is then filled with different ingredients.

Pita Bread Pita is a flatbread found in many Mediterranean, Balkan and Middle Eastern dishes. In Arab countries, pita breads are made as round flatbreads ranging in diameter from 18 cm (7 inches) to 30 cm (12 inches). It is thin and swells when baked.

Laffa bread on the other hand is a Middle Eastern bread that is thicker and chewier than pita. It is used to wrap meat such as kebabs and shawarma in stalls. It is very popular in Israel and Palestine and it is perfect for scooping hummus.

Laffa bread is thicker and chiewer than Pita.
