Homemade Pita Chips Recipe

Pita Chips Are Addicting!

When we open a bag of pita chips, I know I am in trouble. I can never stay out of them. And of course, we usually buy the gigantic bag, because it is a better deal, but that means I just eat more than my fair share of chips. I have no self-control.

I told Josh we need to stop buying them. He didn’t like that idea, he is a big pita chip fan too, but he has self-control. He can eat a handful and be done. So not fair. I told Josh I would start making Homemade Pita Chips instead. He liked that idea.

Three Ingredient Pita Chips

When I make baked pita chips at home, I can control the amount I make…and there won’t be a bag in the cabinet calling my name all day. Plus, homemade is always better.

Homemade pita chips are easy to make. You only need three ingredients: pita bread, olive oil, and salt. I like to use whole wheat pita bread, but white pita bread works too!

How to Make Pita Chips

  • Cut the pita rounds into triangles with a sharp knife. Place the pita triangles on a large baking sheet that has been lined with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper.
  • Brush the pita triangles with olive oil and season with salt, to taste.
  • Bake until golden brown and crispy! The baked pita chips will be thick, crunchy, slightly salty…and SO good! Let cool and serve with your favorite dips.
  • We love eating homemade pita chips with hummus, guacamole, and salsa. You can also use them to make my favorite salad! It’s amazing!

So did making my own pita chips solve my pita chip addiction? Not really. I ate most of the pan, my boys got a few, but hey, at least I didn’t eat a whole bag:)

  1. I am not a big fan of pita chips but my kids love it. At last I can make healthy homemade chips for my kids to keep munching. Voila…

  2. I just bought a new bag of pita chips yesterday… O_O … and they are almost gone. This is going to be my new portion control trick!

  3. Homemade pita chips are the best!!! So easy and you can customize how crispy you want it!

  4. This sounds easy AND yummy. I don’t have much self control either. I’d have to portion them out or I’d eat them all AND all the guacamole. Q, my husband, has self control too. What would THAT be like??????

  5. I have a bit of a pita chip addiction myself. They’re just. so. good.  I can’t wait to try making my own!

    These healthy pita chips are so Instagrammable and adorable! As you know I made it a short while ago and it was lovely! Thx for sharing!

  8. i love making pita chips
    i split the pita then cut into triangles – sprinkle with lemon pepper and a sprinkle of fennel seeds and bake
    hope you try this variation one day – you will love it and it quickly becomes your new addiction
    thanks for sharing your ideas

  9. oops – sorry – forgot to mention – i lightly oil first and do the sprinkling before cutting
    i oil and sprinkle on the rough side since i have split the pita – i get twice as many that way and i love them thin and they go so much more crispy as well
    hope that makes sense now
