Ingredients

  • 4 large rounds pita bread
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • flaked sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
  • Cut each pita round into 8 wedges. For thin and extra crispy chips, use pita pockets and separate each wedge into two layers. For sturdier chips, use pocketless pita, or don't separate the layers.
  • Lightly brush each pita wedge on both sides with olive oil. Arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet (if your sheet is too small to accommodate all of the chips, split them between two pans). Sprinkle the tops with sea salt.
  • Bake until golden and crisp, turning the chips over once. For the thin, single layer chips, this will take from 6-10 minutes. For thicker chips, you'll need 10-15 minutes.*
  • Remove chips from oven and transfer to a wire rack. Chips will continue to crisp as they cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a few days.

Notes

*Baking times will vary by brand of pita, and the times provided are general guidelines. Start checking early to get a feel for the brand of pita bread you're using, as the chips can burn easily.

Seasoning Variations:

  • Mediterranean Herb + Garlic: Stir 1/4 teaspoon each dried oregano, dried basil, and garlic salt into the olive oil.
  • Smoked Paprika + Garlic: Stir 1/4 teaspoon each smoked paprika and garlic salt into the olive oil.
  • Parmesan + Herb: Stir 1/4 teaspoon each dried oregano and dried basil into the oil. Before baking, sprinkle the tops of each chip with grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Cinnamon Sugar: Brush the chips with melted butter instead of olive oil. Mix together 1 tablespoon sugar with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Sprinkle the butter-brushed chips with the cinnamon sugar.
