Homemade Pita Chips

  • Author: Morgan
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 6 mins
  • Total Time: 21 mins
  • Yield: 64 pita chips 1x


  • 4 whole pitas
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Seasonings, as desired (see notes)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut one pita into 8 triangles. Then separate the two sides of each triangle to create 16 individual pita chips. Repeat with the remaining pitas.
  3. Place the pitas on the lined baking sheet. Brush or spray the pitas with olive oil. Turn over and oil the opposite side.
  4. Sprinkle with sea salt, as desired, or other seasonings. (See note.)
  5. Bake until lightly browned, about 6 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool. Serve or store in an air-tight container.


  • Sea Salt. Top with sea salt only before baking. You can optionally sprinkle with fresh parsley after baking for color.
  • Za’atar Seasoned. Use premade za’atar seasoning blend, or feel free to make it yourself. I tend to use a roughly equal combo of toasted sesame seeds, dried thyme, dried oregano, sumac, and cumin, plus a bit of sea salt, to taste.
  • Garlic & Herb. Sprinkle with garlic powder, dried oregano, dried basil, and parmesan cheese.
  • Cinnamon Sugar. Cinnamon and granulated sugar are all you need. Add a pinch of salt if you want a sweet and salty combo.
