To make homemade pita chips with zaatar, you’ll need just 3 ingredients:
Pita bread: You can use plain or whole wheat pita bread for these pita chips. I like to keep them with the pocket in the middle instead of separating the pita pocket, which makes for delicious, crispy, layered chips.
Olive oil: Helps get the pita chips nice and crisp and makes the seasoning stick.
Za’atar: A common Middle Eastern spice blend made from thyme, sumac, sesame seeds, and more. It is delicious. In this recipe, I used Zaatar Road spice mix, and it was amazing! Check out their website for more delicious goodies, imported from the Levantine region.
How to Make Zaatar Pita Chips:
Here is a quick overview of the process for how to make pita chips from pita bread (full recipe included below):
Prep the pita bread: Cut your whole pita bread loaf into triangles, try to have them cut into similar size pieces, so they bake evenly.
Season: Place triangular pita chips in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with zaatar spice. Toss until evenly coated.
Bake: Arrange triangles in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchments paper. Place baking sheet in oven and bake pita chips for 8-10 minutes, until golden browned and crispy.
Eat: Then eat them up while they are still nice and warm and enjoy!
