Homemade pita chips with a bowl of hummus.

I became completely obsessed with pita chips after buying some from a stand at the Farmer’s Market. They had been deep-fried to a crisp and then were loaded up with lemon pepper seasoning. WOW! I was inspired to try making them at home.

I skipped the deep-fryer in favor of the onion and added a more neutral seasoning that my kids would love. These easy chips are great as a snack with hummus, on the side of your next Mediterranean Buddha Bowl, or as an all-purpose dipper for any cuisine.

Recipe tips and variations

  • Yield: This recipe makes four generous snack-sized servings; each the equivalent of one full pita.
  • Storage: Store pita chips in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 to 3 days. Do not store in the refrigerator (they will dry out).
  • Customize your seasonings: I call for garlic powder and dried thyme for a classic Greek-inspired combo. Or try: cumin + coriander, Za’atar, Dukkah, paprika + chili powder, or Lemon Pepper Seasoning.

Recipe FAQs
