The Basics - Making Pita Chips

The Basics - Making Pita Chips

Pita Chips are so easy to make, which makes me wonder why "already-made" pita chips bought in the store can run close to $5.

Buy 1 package of pita bread (the very thin kind). 

 Take 2 pitas out of the package and separate each pita in half (as seen in the picture above)(you should have 4 pita halves).

Melt 1/4 cup butter (you may use olive oil instead).

Brush the butter on both sides of each pita-half.

Sprinkle with garlic salt or just plain sea salt.

Place on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5 minutes.

Flip each pita half and bake for another 5 minutes.

Allow to cool and then break up into smaller pieces.


VARIATIONS:  Experiment with different flavors - before you spread the melted butter - try adding some dried herbs - be creative.

examples:     Italian:  basil, oregano & garlic salt

lemon pepper and dill

Cilantro & lime juice for dipping in salsa

try a sweet one:  cinnamon and brown sugar sprinkled on top instead of salt & then dip in yogurt.


  1. Well, that does look easy! I'll have to try that next time I want some for dipping.

  2. Yum! Add some hummus with cut veggies and there's a delicious meal.

  3. I'm definitely trying this! Would be perfect with salsa and guacamole.


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
