Make the dressing: Whisk the mustard, lemon zest and lemon juice in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until well blended. Whisk in the dill, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste.

Toss the tuna, chickpeas, cucumber, scallions and tomatoes with 1/4 cup of the dressing in a medium bowl.

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Lightly brush both sides of the pita with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook until golden, about 1 minute per side. Cool slightly and cut into wedges.
