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.
