I purchased a large bag of pita flat bread at Costco.  I was thinking they were pita pockets, but they had no pocket!

I decided to make these into chips so they wouldn’t go to waste.  You can use any kind of pita bread – even the ones with pockets. You can use store bought pita bread or make your own pita bread

How do you make pita chips?

All you need is pita bread, olive oil and salt. You could easily add herbs or garlic to  suit your tastes. 

The pita bread gets a light coating of olive oil and sprinkling of salt. Then they are sliced into wedges and baked until crispy.

What do you serve with chips?

I like to eat these chips with my homemade Roasted Garlic Hummus. But they’d be equally delicious with Beet Hummus and Smoked Salmon Dip.
