In the interest of economics, I started making my own pita chips from store-bought pita.  I picked up bags whenever they were on sale and threw them in the freezer until needed.  That being said, I have a bag of pita chips on my counter right now that somebody ELSE made.  There’s no shame in that!  But should you be so inclined, try this:


goes perfectly with hummus

they go perfectly with hummus

pan: rimmed baking sheet

oven: 350 degrees

store-bought pita bread, cut into wedges

olive oil

dried oregano, salt, pepper

Drizzle the pita wedges generously with olive oil.  Liberally season with oregano, salt, & pepper.  Spread into an even layer on your baking sheet and bake 20 minutes, turning once.  Now the trick—to get your chips extra-crispy, turn off the oven and leave the chips in for another 15-20 minutes.  Store at room temperature in an airtight container or Ziploc bag for up to two weeks.


  1. I can vouch for the chips. Thanks for personally teaching me how to make these pita chips. Way way better & healthier than store bought.
