Prep Time 10 minutes
Course Snack
Servings 4


  • 4 6-8 inch pita bread rounds
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika or smoked paprika for a smokier taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the pita bread rounds on a clean work surface.
  • Cut each pita round into wedges or triangles, choosing your preferred size for the crispiest or slightly chewier results. Aim for even sizes to ensure uniform baking.
  • In a bowl, mix the olive oil, oregano, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Place the pita chips in a large bowl, drizzle the seasoned olive oil mixture over them, and gently toss to coat each chip evenly.
  • Spread the seasoned pita chips in a single layer on baking sheets. Use multiple sheets or bake in batches if necessary.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes, flipping them halfway through, until the pita chips are golden brown and crispy. Keep a close eye on them to prevent overcooking.
  • Once done, remove the pita chips from the oven and let them cool completely. They will continue to crisp up as they cool down.
  • Once completely cooled, serve your homemade pita chips with your favorite dips, such as hummus, tzatziki, salsa, or any dip of your choice.


  • Ensure the pita chips are completely cool before storing them to maintain crispiness.
  • Store in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag, removing as much air as possible to prevent moisture and staleness.
  • To extend the shelf life, freeze the pita chips in a freezer-safe container or bag for up to 2-3 months. Thaw at room temperature or reheat in the oven for a few minutes before serving.
