Im having a hard time finding pita's that are cut in the middle and low enough to count as a starch even at 4". Have any ideas of where I could buy them. I love making chikcen oitza out of them.

I know our stores/brands wouldn't be the same here in Canada anyway, but I thought I would mention that my COD didn't get too specific about pitas. The only real point they wanted me to take away was that they should be no bigger than 4 inches. I've eaten tonnes of those and I'm doing pretty well. Honestly though, I've never even looked at the other nutritional info. I must have been on auto-pilot!

I get mine in the deli section of the supermarket. The trick is to use a serated knife very close to the top to stuff them. I'm not sure of the brand off the top of my head, but they're 4 inches and slice failry easily. ;)

I'm going grocery shopping tommorrow, I'll edit to add the brand then!

OOOHHHHH! I just got it! You mean chicken pita pizza, right? And slicing them in the middle means you want two rounds, right? If that's it, I use the Toufayan mini pitas, which are 4" and 70 calories and are in the deli section at my grocery store.

Yes the chicken pita pizza.I love that recipe. I found some that work. My mom had bought some pitas that weren't cut at all and it was very hard to cut them open.

Gotcha. Glad you got it worked out. Sorry for my being so dense! (You will notice that it happens from time to time) :)
