Parmesan-Garlic Pita Chips

It’s Sunday Funday and our theme is Chips!  This broad theme can include recipes made with chips or recipes for chips themselves.

I decided to make Pita Chips!

I started off with homemade pita rounds.  I’ve used this Whole Wheat Pita recipe in the past, but today I used this recipe.

Next, it’s a matter of mixing the spices with the olive oil and tossing the pita breads in the mixture.  This mix is quite thick due to the parmesan, but as long as you stir thoroughly, the breads can be evenly coated!  Then it’s a quick bake in the oven and you have chips!

These are delightful on their own, and even better served up with Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (pictured here) or Greek Salads!

Parmesan-Garlic Pita Chips

2 pita rounds, cut in 8 wedges

1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Salt, to taste

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon dried basil

1 ½ tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and place a pizza stone in the oven.  

Place the pita wedges into a bowl.  Whisk together the olive oil, spices, and parmesan.  Pour the olive oil mixture over the pita wedges and stir to coat.

Place the wedges onto the hot pizza stone and bake for 3 minute increments, checking the chips each time.  I wanted nice, crispy chips, so I baked mine for a total of 9 minutes.  If you like a chewier, more toast-like chips, pull them out sooner.

Cool slightly and serve with hummus.


  1. Oh man these look delicious! I am such a sucker for garlicky anything, pita anything, and hummus everything. So, I'm sold.

  2. I love pita chips. This is a great recipe to have on hand. Thanks

  3. Those sound absolutely tasty and wonderful. I'd like to reach in and grab a handful.

  4. I hate waste so this recipe is ideal for when the pitas are starting to get "past their best" and no one wants to eat them. Love the flavors you've chosen, Amy, and the cheese! Also, I'm with you on the crunchier chip. Those are the best.

  5. Amy what a wonderful idea, have not thought of making pita chips at home. We love to have them with our salads or hummus. Its a must try recipe.
