Snacktime! – Pita Chips

2011 March 15

Alright, so I was going to write some sort of long, witty post about how I was at the grocery store and was appalled at the price of pita chips, and that my Jew sense overcame me and I decided to make my own. Well, in a nutshell, that’s exactly what happened. Pita chips are awesome–crunchy, flavorful and absolutely delicious. The only problem is that they’re not cheap…that is, unless you make them yourself! I tried my hand at making them, and found it super-easy, cheap and the perfect snackfood to complement hummus. Here’s the recipe:

Baked Pita Chips

  • 1 package of pocket pitas (usually have 5 or 6 in them)
  • 2tbsp Olive Oil
  • Garlic Powder
  • Black Pepper
  • Sea Salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  2. Cut each pita into eight pieces (just like a pizza pie!)
  3. Split each piece in two–this should be easy, as you’re basically using the separation from the pocket to do it
  4. Place the pita pieces on a large baking sheet
  5. Brush each triangle with olive oil. Sprinkle the garlic powder, pepper and salt over the pieces (only on one side)
  6. Place in the oven for 6-10 minutes (damn those temperamental ovens!) and remove when they get golden brown. Be sure to pay a lot of attention to them–they burn easily
  7. Serve with hummus, baba ghannouj or anything else that you enjoy pita chips with!
