Ingredients

  • 4 whole wheat pita bread rounds
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher or sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
  • ½ teaspoon sesame or poppy seeds optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F / 190 C / gas mark 5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
  • In a small bowl, combine olive oil and seasonings. Brush both sides of each pita bread with seasoned oil mixture. Sprinkle one side with seeds, if using.
  • Cut pita rounds into 8 wedges each and arrange them in a single layer on the baking sheet. Make sure they don't overlap!
  • Bake for 7-10 minutes, watching closely. Remove from the oven when their edges begin to turn golden brown and cool on a wire rack.

Notes

Store in an air-tight container for 2-3 days. For longer storage, you can freeze them then transfer the chips straight from the freezer to a baking mat. Re-crisp them in a 350 F / 190 C oven for 2-3 minutes.
