Say so Long to Store-Bought Pita Chips

Source: Say So Long to Store-Bought Pita Chips

If you're taking the time to make your own hummus, why not go the extra mile and serve it with homemade pita chips? They're so easy to make, you practically don't even need a recipe! The best thing about baking pita until it's toasted and crunchy is that you control the seasonings. Depending on what you serve it with, adjust the spices to mimic the flavors in the dip. I offered these chips with red pepper hummus packed with lots of garlic, so before baking, I dusted the triangles of pita with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.



Ingredients

4 pitas, each cut into 8 wedges
About 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
Spices (such as cumin, za'atar, or garlic powder), optional


Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Drizzle or brush both sides of the pita wedges with olive oil and season generously with salt. If desired, sprinkle with spices.
  3. Bake until lightly browned and crispy, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool and enjoy.
