Pita Chips

On of my absolute favorite snacks is Hummus with Pita Chips.
The Pita Chips can be purchased but why buy them when you can buy a package of Pita Bread and make your own at a fraction of the price.
Pita Chips take only minutes to make and if you keep a bag of Pita bread in your freezer. . . you will never have stale chips again.
  • 1 bag Pita bread
  • olive oil
  • seasoned garlic powder. . .I use Johnny's
  • coarse ground sea salt
  1. Lightly brush both sides of your pita bread with olive oil
  2. Lightly sprinkle with garlic powder and sea salt
  3. Cut the bread into 8 wedges and separate the each wedge to make 16 chips.
  4. Put them on a cookie sheet . . you will need to repeat this or use more than one cookie sheet. I used parchment paper to make the cleanup easier.
  5. Bake at 375 F for about 5 minutes or until lightly browned.. . .set your timer or you will be tossing them all in the garbage. . I've done it.

  1. Mmm. I love fresh pita chips. I always forget how good homemade are until I buy a package -- they never even come close. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Garlic powder or salt seems to not agree with me. Just might use garlic infused EVOO instead. Good idea of keeping frozen pita bread on hand!
