Pizza Markouk en Tawa

Back story: Several years ago I dined with a Middle Eastern family in their home. They served a bread that was paper thin, translucent. And, delicious. Only recently did I discover Markouk at a Mid-Eastern grocery.

Always had the idea that it would make a wonderful wrap for some filling. My window of opportunity has passed to make it a commercial entity. The burrito is now a staple item. And, in fact, there is such a thing as a wrap sandwich based on a large wheat flour tortilla.

What's a Tawa? The term is from India. But it's simply a flat grill surface used in so many cultures mainly for flat breads. In Mexico for tortillas is a comal.
