Baked Pita chips



My sister introduced me to some American Pitta chips which were really delicious with hummus or even sour cream.   Since that day, I had been meaning to try making some pitta chips.  I made these today using ready made pitta bread.


  • 5 Pitta Squares (you van use any pitta bread)
  • 2-3 tbls Olive Oil (you can use any oil)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp dried basil (you can use any herbs)


1.  Preheat the oven to 170° (325°F or Gas mark 3).

2. Toast the pitta bread (I did mine in a toaster) to separate the pitta pockets and cut the pitta bread into triangles.



3. Transfer the pitta into a large plastic bag and add the oil, salt, pepper and herbs. Tie the bag and shake it so that the oil and spices coat the pitta.

4. Layer these on a baking tray, turn the oven to 150°C (300°F or Gas mark 2) and cook for 12 minutes. Switch off the oven and leave the pitta chips in the oven for 12 more minutes.P1190515
