Notes from Anna
  • To make the pitta crisps, slice each pitta in half, brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Cut each half into triangles, place on a baking tray and bake at 190˚C for about 10 minutes.
  • You can prepare the pitta crisps in advance and keep in an airtight container until ready to serve.
  • This easy dip is best served warm and makes a great lunch or snack.
