Stir in garlic, chili powder, coriander, cumin, pepper, cinnamon, cayenne pepper and remaining salt; cook for 1 minute. Stir in lamb; cook until warmed, about 5 minutes. Stir in cilantro.

Meanwhile, arrange pitas in single layer on baking sheet. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until crisp and golden, 6 to 8 minutes. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

Spread lamb mixture on platter; top with hummus and pickled onions. Serve with pitas.
