“A recipe from "The BBQ Bible", by Steven Raichlen, for the Middle East. Grilling is a great way to crisp wedges of pita bread for dipping. (It's also a great way to add fresh life to stale pita bread.) For extra color and flavor, sprinkle the chips with white or black sesame seeds before grilling.”
