Whole Wheat Pita Crisps
I love a homemade pita crisp. Our local gourmet deli, Sunterra, make great homemade pita crisps but they cost a fortune. Making them ourselves is a lot cheaper and so easy. These Whole Wheat Pita Crisps went great with the Edamame Guacamole I made the other day.
Lightly salted but full of flavor, these Whole Wheat Pita Crisps are as healthy as you make them. You control what goes on them. They are great for any dip, salsa or spread. They stand up to thicker dips too and don’t break as easily as tortilla chips.
Whole Wheat Pita Crisps
A homemade pita crisp that will stand up to the thickest of dips.
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. dried basil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 6 whole wheat pita pockets
- Preheat oven to 400F. With a pizza cutter slice pita into wedges of desired size, we sliced each pita in 6 pieces. Mix together the olive oil, with garlic powder, basil, and salt and pepper. Paint the individual pitas and place on the baking sheet. Bake 6-8 min. unitl crisped and browned. Watch that they do not burn. Repeat until all pitas are baked. Salt them lightly again when removed from oven.

I’m always making pita crisps when I buy hummus and dips. It’s so easy and so delicious!
What a fabulous idea, we eat wholemeal pitta’s most days so always have them in the house – I must try this idea soon:-)
Perfect for snacking and I bet they’re more-ish!

Love that you created your own pita chips. I have done that before too and they are so good made at home. Just don’t tell people it is easy! LOL

This is how I make mine all the time. I learned it at a cooking class years ago. I’ve never put basil on mine though. I can’t wait to try that!
Dear Tara, these are perfect and so simple too! Must give this a try soon. xo, Catherine
