Split the pita breads in half horizontally to make 4 rounds. Arrange in a single layer on a heavy baking sheet. Bake until crisp, 7 to 8 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Chipotle Cream:
In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, lime juice, agave and chipotle pepper until smooth.

Spoon the vegetable mixture on top of the crispy pitas and serve with a dollop of the chipotle cream.
