  • Cut or tear the pita into large pieces. Spread on a foil lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Place under the broiler until crisp and browned, turning them over once. Set aside. When cool, break into smaller pieces.
  • Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, black pepper and sumac (See Note 1). Set aside.
