Homemade Pita Chips

Homemade Pita Chips


bag of large pitas (usually holds 8-10) - the kind that can be used for sandwich pockets
extra virgin olive oil - for brushing the pita tops
dried herbs - I like mixed Italian or Oregano
cayenne pepper or paprika - sweet or spicy is up to you
garlic powder - one of the few times I don not use fresh


Step 1

Preheat the oven to broil and place a rack in the middle of the oven.

Step 2

Cut pitas in half cross-wise, and then split halves so that there is a rough side and a baked side. Keep the rough side up to absorb the olive oil.

Step 3

Cut pita halves into 3-4 wedges per half.

Step 4

Place wedges on foil-lined cookie sheets and brush with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic, herbs and cayenne or paprika.

Step 5

Place the cookie sheet in the oven with the door ajar. This doesn’t take very long, just a couple of minutes. You need to watch them …they burn quickly.
