How to Grill Pita Bread to Serve with Dip

Flat bread, or pita bread, originated in the Middle East. Circular in shape, this type of bread gets cooked in a hot oven. During the cooking process, the two edges of the pita separate, resulting in a hollow centre. When sliced in half, this hollow centre becomes a pocket, making it easy for ingredients to be placed into it. Use pita bread as an alternative to chips by using already-baked pita and grilling it until it is crisp.
