  • Split pita bread rounds in half horizontally; cut each circle into 6 wedges (kitchen shears work well for this task). Place the wedges in a single layer on large baking sheets. Brush with 2 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until crisp and golden brown.

  • Garnish dip with fresh basil leaves, if desired. Serve with pita chips. Makes about 2 cups (60 appetizers).
