Try wrapping one in a damp paper towel and microwaving it on high for about 20-30 seconds.

I tried that Andy, but the paper towel still did not taste very good.

GB, next time throw away the paper towel and eat the pita, not the other way around.

Maybe you should go lie down and rest for awhile. Your wife can take all the sharp knives away and lock them up.

Split them and top generously with shredded cheese, then broil till brown.

Good way to use up old pita and cheese scraps.

You do know, don't you, that some paper towelling (recycled) should not be put in the MW?

I was just about to question whether they could be used as a breading. Maybe add a blend of seasonings too.
