The only thing better than a homemade, crunchy, salty chip is a super quick and easy homemade, crunchy, salty chip!  That’s why I’m sharing this recipe with you; because you deserve to have these salt-tooth satisfying crunchy chips in your life in 20 minutes or less.

The added bonus, (as if you need one) is that while these little babies are baking, your entire house will smell as though you have a loaf of fresh bread in the oven.  The aroma will have your loved ones flocking to the kitchen; I know because witnessed it myself yesterday as I baked up a batch of these glorious pita chips!

Why this Recipe Works:

  • You’re free to choose your own pita (whole wheat, gluten-free, regular, etc.) so you’re able to make the pita chips of your dreams.
  • These chips require and therefore contain very minimal oil, unlike many store bought pita chip brands.
  • Another bonus: Clean up is almost non-existent!

What goes well with these pita chips?

How to Make Crunchy Salt and Pepper Pita Chips:

1. First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Then, cut each pita into 8 triangles.

2. At this point, you have a choice: would you like thicker, heartier pita chips or slightly thinner and crispier pita chips? If you want thick/hearty, leave the triangles as they are.  If you’d like thinner/crispier, carefully separate the pita triangles so that they are no longer double stacked.

3. Next, lay those triangles down in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. No parchment, no prob! Any nonstick baking sheet will do as is.

4. Drizzle the 1 Tb. olive oil or avocado oil evenly over the pieces and then use your finger tips to rub the oil over both sides of every triangle. Then, spread them out over the baking sheet to create one single layer.

5. Lastly, sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over one side of the pita pieces.

6. Pop those lil’ chips-to-be in your preheated oven.  If you’re making the thicker chips, bake for about 15 minutes or until the edges are browned.  For thinner chips, bake for about 8-10 minutes. Watch closely to make sure they do not burn.

Once they’re cool enough to handle, take a nibble to make sure your salt and pepper level is on point. Add extra as needed. FYI – some parts may be a little chewy fresh out of the oven, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but they will become crunchier as they cool.

That’s all there is to it!

Top Tips for Making Crunchy Salt and Pepper Pita Chips:

  • Want to change up the flavors? Try adding some garlic powder or even chili powder or blackening spice for a little bit of a spice. Feel free to get creative!
  • Using a salt that’s on the coarse side is not necessary, but it will add a little something special to these chips.
  • To make clean up even easier, you can find those flat, pre-cut parchment sheets HERE
