These homemade pita chips are amazing! They are super addictive, yum yum yum! You can crunch through a whole batch in one sitting! Want the hummus recipe that’s pictured with those baked pita chips? That’s my sesame-free hummus, super easy to make!
Homemade pita chips are so much better than store-bought. Since you make them with fresh pita bread, they don’t have any chemicals or preservatives! They also taste clean and fresh, not like the store-bought ones that’s been sitting in the bag for months 🙂 As always, homemade wins the taste test!
Making these baked pita chips is super easy. It only takes 20 minutes to make a huge batch! All you need to do is brush pita with oil, cut into triangles, put on a baking sheet and bake at 350F for 15 minutes or until crisp. That’s all there is to homemade pita chips 🙂 You can even make them in a microwave instead of the oven – check out my microwave pita chips recipe.
You can make these pita chips as healthy as you’d like. You can use the whole wheat pita, gluten-free pita, homemade pita bread, you can omit the oil if cutting calories – it’s totally up to you.
You can also control and customize the seasonings. I like my pita chips plain, so I add nothing. You can add salt, pepper, chili powder, cinnamon, garlic powder, onion powder – whatever seasonings you like. If adding the spices, add them after brushing pita with oil – the oil will help the seasonings stick to the pita chips.
How To Make Baked Pita Chips
Step 1: Brush Pita With Oil
Using a pastry brush, brush the pita bread with olive oil on both sides. If you are cutting calories, you can omit this step – the pita chips will still be crisp without oil.
Step 2: Cut Pita Into Wedges
I always use scissors for cutting pita bread – scissors make it super easy! If you like your pita chips thin, you can separate the pita pockets and cut to make them thin (if you do that, cut the baking time in half as they will bake quicker).
Step 3: Put Pita Chips On Baking Sheet
Line the baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange pita chips on it in a single layer. If desired, you can sprinkle them with salt, pepper and spices of your choice at this point – or just bake them plain.
Step 4: Bake Pita Chips
Bake the pita chips in pre-heated 350F oven for 15-20 minutes, or until crispy. Enjoy!
