Chop tomato in small cubes and add chopped tomato to a paper towel lined plate. Tip: this will help drain the excess water and avoid sogginess. Add tomatoes to mixing bowl.
Toast pita rounds on both sides in oven until very crispy and browned, about 7 minutes. Remove from oven, drizzle with olive oil. Let cool.
For dressing, combine lemon juice and 2 tbsp. olive oil, Salt and pepper to taste and whisk together.
