Also known as cracker bread, this Armenian flatbread is available dry or frozen in large, cooked rounds. One of our favorite secret weapons when friends come to call, lavash bread has a smooth consistency that makes winning pinwheel sandwiches that taste wonderful and come together fast. If you can find lavash in your area, it's larger and a bit thicker than a tortilla and usually has fewer brown spots. It often has a powdery surface, too, which makes it easier to work with than some flatbreads. For a very nice roll-up with a winning appearance, stick with the frozen variety so you can avoid having to remoisten the bread.
