This recipe makes more than you need for our summer picnic menu, but you won’t regret it. The pita chips keep well in a sealed bag. The Garlic-Yogurt Sauce makes a great dip.

  • 2 tsp. black sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp. ground sumac
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne; more to taste
  • Kosher salt
  • 6 whole wheat or white pita breads
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, approximately


  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 400°F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the black sesame seeds, sumac, cayenne, and 1-1/2 tsp. salt.
  3. Split each pita horizontally into 2 rounds and tear each round into 3 rustic pieces. Brush a large rimmed baking sheet with a generous amount of olive oil, and spread 12 of the pita pieces in a single layer, inner side down, on the sheet. Brush the outer side of the pita with additional olive oil and sprinkle evenly with about a third of the spice mixture. Toast the pita in the oven until golden brown and crisp, about 8 minutes. Repeat with the remaining pita and spice mixture in two more batches.
