Pita

Is there ever a word connection that is so obvious that when you finally put it together it’s like…duh!  That’s what happened with pita and pizza.  I learned they have the same word origins.  And when you look at a pizza crust it is indeed just large pita bread. They both come from Latin pinsere meaning to pinch, a word meant to describe their flat forms.
