  • Using a pastry brush, brush the seasoned oil on both sides of the pita bread then stack as you do so.
  • With a sharp knife or pizza cutter cut each bread into 8 equal triangles. if you would rather have thinner chips then split the bread into two, brush with oil then cut into triangles.
  • Arrange the pita bread on a baking tray in a single layer and bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes flipping it halfway for a good measure. Reduce the cooking time for thinner chips.
  • Let the chips cool completely before serving.

Notes

How to make pita chips in the air fryer
It is the same method as baking them in the oven.
First, you season, oil, and cut into triangles. It is not necessary to spray the air fryer basket with oil if you have already brush oil on the bread.
Arrange the triangles on the air fryer basket in a single layer and cook for 8 minutes at 190C/380F, 5 minutes for open pocket chips. Flip or shake halfway for even cooking.
Serve with any dip of choice when it is completely cooled.
Tips
  • Sub white pita for a whole meal for a healthier option.
  • Use gluten-free pita bread to make the chips gluten-free
  • Make sure you let the chips cool completely before storing otherwise the steam would let it go soggy.
  • You can have individual batches of the chips flavored to taste. From the Mediterranean, Mexican, Italian, Spanish, whatever you want.
