Instructions

Notes

For thinner chips, run a knife or kitchen scissors around the perimeter of the pita and use your fingers to separate the pita into two thin circular layers before oiling, seasoning and slicing. Reduce baking time by a few minutes as they will crisp up quicker.

  1. Hi Brie. I made these yesterday for guests, 6 pita breads, they were all gone. Soooooo good, I am sure I will be making them again and again. I sprinkled them some with nigella seeds, some with oregano and coarse salt and some with paprika powder.

    1. Yay! I’m so glad you and your guests enjoyed them 🙂

      Nigella seeds have such a magical sounding name…I had to google them and OMG Adina a spice with the flavor of black pepper, onion and oregano! I’m going to have to hunt some down ASAP!!! Thank you for sharing what I am sure will be an amazing addition to my spice rack 🙂
