What’s better than sliced bread? How about folded rounds of pita bread, or the baked buns we use for our sub sandwiches? We love both, and these traditional Mediterranean and Italian sandwiches are a huge hit, especially at parties and other events where you need to feed bigger groups of people.
At Sipipa, we now offer sub and pita trays in small (for 10 people) and large (for 20 people) sizes. They are a great way to feed fresh, delicious food for a large or small crowd of family and friends.
With pita trays, you can make one or two selections for how you want us to stuff your pitas:
- Chicken Greek
- Chicken Caesar
- Chicken Pesto
- Honey Dijon Turkey
Pita bread has been a Middle Eastern and Eastern Mediterranean staple for 4,000 years. It has served as both a stand-alone bread and a utensil for sandwiching other delicious ingredients together. Its history can be truly acknowledged through the distinctive taste and the flavors folded in that flourish with every bite.
Pita breads are relatively simple to make. They are baked at high temperatures so the thick dough significantly swells, creating an internal pocket formed by steam. In traditional Greek restaurants, you are likely to see pitas stuffed with classic accompaniments such as baba ganoush, tabouleh, hummus and tzatziki, but we like putting our Italian and American twist on this nutritious source of protein, calcium, and fiber.
With sub trays, you can pick two different varieties of subs, plus select which bread you prefer for each. We offer 10 different varieties of subs, so picking your favorite may be hard!
- Chicken Philly
- Ham & Cheese
- Ham & Roast Beef
- Ham & Salami
- Beef Philly
We almost consider it a miracle that we can fit so much flavor between our handmade buns. Whether you’re looking for the crowd-pleasing nostalgia of ham and cheese, or that somewhat spicy and distinctly flavor that taste quintessentially Italian, we’ve got you covered.
The sub is an Italian sandwich that originated in several different Italian American communities in the Northeast United States between the late 19th to mid-20th centuries, and now it’s popular nearly worldwide.
The sub comes from the shape of the roll resembling the shape of a submarine. Some sources say the name as originating in the Navy’s primary submarine base in New London, Connecticut, around World War II. Another theory suggests it was named by Italian immigrant grocery store owner Dominic Conti, who named it after seeing a submarine in New Jersey’s Paterson Museum in 1928.
Conti’s granddaughter said, “He was selling the traditional Italian sandwiches, which consisted of a long crust roll, filled with cold cuts, topped with lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, onions, oil, vinegar, Italian herbs and spices, salt, and pepper. The sandwich started with a layer of cheese and ended with a layer of cheese (this was so the bread wouldn’t get soggy).”
