A “quesapita” (or “quesa-pita") is a quesadilla served using pita bread instead of a tortilla. The restaurant chains The Pita Pit and Mr. Pita both offer quesapitas.
“Quesapita” is cited in print since at least 2006.

I tried the new grande quesadilla from Taco Bell and I must say I didn’t like it very much. I love the regular quesadillas but the fluffy bread that they use kindof grosses me out. It seemed more like pita bread than it did a tortilla, which is obviously what it is NOT.

Late Night Pita Pit
February 21st, 2010 | Author: mazz
The delivery took awhile but I expected that to happen on a Saturday night in State College. I decided to try something from Pita Pit that I had never eaten before, the quesapita. The quesapita is exactly what it sounds like, a quesadilla made with a pita instead of a tortilla. As simple as this might sound it is a great idea that I have never seen anywhere else before. The quesapita I ordered came with steak but you can choose any type of meat you want, and you can also add tomatoes for free and an assortment of other toppings for a small additional charge. The quesapita was soft and chewy with steak and cheddar cheese towards the center, and the outside of it was crunchy and crisp like a baked pita chip, a very satisfying one two punch of crunch and chew.

Quesapita for lunch?
I made this Quesapita with my Green Pan in about 2-3 minutes. Take one whole wheat pita (sans partially–or fully–hydrogenated anything) and cut it in half. Spritz both sides with olive oil (or use butter, whatever is your pleasure). Take one slice of meunster cheese (melts nicely) and cut diagonally into 2 triangles. The triangles fit perfectly into the 2 semicircles you just cut the pita into. Lay the pieces into your pan on medium-high heat and flip over after a minute or so. Cook until golden or until the cheese is melted, cut with a pizza wheel and serve.
