Garlic Baked Pita Chips

  • 5 (6 inch) pita bread rounds
  • 1-2 tablespoon minced fresh garlic (or use about 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (can use vegetable oil)
  • salt
  • black pepper (optional)
1.      Split the pita rounds to make 10 rounds.
2.     Set oven to 400 degrees F (set oven rack to lowest position).
3.     In a small bowl stir the oil with the fresh garlic (or garlic powder) brush lightly over both sides of the rounds.
4.     Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper if desired.
5.     Slice each round into 6 wedges (I use a pizza cutter for this) then place on a baking sheet in a single layer.
6.     Bake for about 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp (watch closely these brown fast).

I absolutely love pita chips, but they tend to be expensive. I have never thought to make myy own. Thanks for the great idea!

Katie you are so right they are expensive. I have seen them for almost $4 a bag at times. We have a Mediterranean store here in Houston that makes them fresh all day long. What’s really fun is you can watch them being made they come out of the ceiling on a conveyer belt. They are 12 inches wide and you get eight for $1.50you cannot beat that.
