It only takes a few minutes to make these homemade baked pita chips! Who doesn’t love warm, fresh chips?! The pita bread is cut into pieces and baked rather than fried until they are crispy. After making these you will never need to buy a bag from the store again. Add any other seasoning of choice before baking for different flavor variations.

What is Pita?

Pita is a yeast-leavened flat bread frequently used in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cooking. If you are using pita pockets for this recipe separate them in half so the chips are thinner.

How to Make Baked Pita Chips

Tips and Tricks for This Recipe

Swaps and Substitutions
  • If you don’t have canola (or vegetable oil) cooking spray, brush the pita triangles with canola oil.
  • You can also brush the pita with olive oil and bake as directed.
  • Swap the white pita for whole wheat pita bread.
Flavor Variations
  • Try adding a sprinkle of your favorite spice blend like za’atar seasoning or simply garlic powder before baking for a flavorful twist.
  • For a sweet version of pita chips add 1 tablespoon of cinnamon sugar over the chips when they come out of the oven.
