Homemade Pita Chip Tutorial

When we had our housewarming party a friend of mine requested that my homemade guacamole be on the menu. (It's kind of famous.) We were already planning on a Mediterranean style menu so I wasn't sure about the guacamole. In the end, I ended up making it and serving it with homemade pita chips instead of tortilla chips.

Now, not only did I satisfy the first friend with the guacamole, but my other friend (who I learned reads my blog!!) requested I do a tutorial on the pita chips! She couldn't believe they were homemade. So, Katie, this is for you. :]

What you'll need:
1 Package of Pita bread
6 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Garlic Cloves, minced

Combine the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper into a bowl and stir till well mixed.

Using kitchen shears, cut the pita bread into 8 triangular-shaped pieces. Brush the oil mixture on both sides of the pita chips. Arrange them on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes. They will turn golden brown and crisp!

It's a very easy recipe, that is just as good (and cheaper!) than a bag of pita chips from the store. You can even experiment with different toppings. I think I'm going to try parmesan cheese next time. Enjoy!


  1. These look fantastic! An I even have some pita bread in the house...


  2. They look amazing! Definitely something I'd like to try. Let me know how the parmesan cheese ones turn out if you try them. I love anything cheese.

  4. oh YUMMY those look so tasty. they would work perfectly with my black bean salsa & even humus. i'll have to try these.

  5. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I will defintily try it.

    I've been buying bagged pita chips from the store lately, but after making these I will never buy store bought chips again. These we so good. Who knew they were that easy to make?! Thanks so much for the post!
