Homemade Seasoned Pita Chips


Homemade seasoned pita chips are so easy to make and perfect to pair with your favorite dip! Make these for your next game day or television binge day!

Working in the nation’s capital has its perks sometimes.

We rarely have movies or TV shows shooting here because well, logistically and financially, it’s a pain. Apparently permits are hard to obtain (with reason) and taxes and production costs here are outrageous. Logistically, you probably want to have all your equipment trucks around the city but it’s near impossible to find parking and you can’t drive a truck next to the White House or the Secret Service go ballistic on you (again, with reason).

SO. When we finally spot a movie or TV show shooting in DC we naturally get very giddy. And when it’s right next to your office building, you get even more giddy.

AND when it’s a hugely popular show…(House of Cards, anyone?) you naturally freak out too because well. Kevin Spacey. Robin Wright.

Now, let’s not even pretend I actually like the show. GASP. Yeah, I couldn’t get into it, like I’ve mentioned in the past, BUT I can appreciate everyone’s obsession and Jason’s addiction so I went on a stroll and snapped some photos of them filming! I got there right when the “President” limo was pulling up to the building to drop off, well, I presume the prez. I then saw all this film crew with HOC hats, camera tracks, lighting equipment, and all these temporary barricades.

“Photos or it didn’t happen” – here you go. So neat, huh?!

Homemade seasoned pita chips are so easy to make and perfect to pair with your favorite dip and favorite game on TV!

I love Stacy’s pita chips. Like I can eat an entire bag of it in one sitting kinda love. BUT I don’t like how much is actually in one bag :( or maybe it’s cause I eat way too much of it? Haha

Anyway, so I’ve made homemade seasoned pita chips before but I’ve never shared the recipe! Silly me. I’ve been holding out on this delicious goodness from you for too long. They’re REALLY easy to make and they make for a great snack and you can impress your friends when you have them over for some hummus, kopanisti, chorizo pimento dip, and more fun dips!

  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika powder
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. Arrange pita triangles on the baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Using a pastry brush, generously brush the tops of the pitas with the oil mixture.

Recipe Notes

You can tweak the seasonings to your liking. If you don't like a garlic seasoning, you could always omit the garlic powder and just use olive oil, salt, and pepper. Alternatively, you could use ground cumin and paprika for a different kind of flavor! Have fun experimenting :)

    Definitely not daydreaming about laying on the couch with a giant mountain of these and some hummus. No, absolutely not! ;)

    I found this post on pinterest. The first batch I made I left them in for the 15 mins but came back to completely burnt chips. I had to throw them all out :(
    So I did a second batch and only left them in for 8 mins they tasted delicious. I probably could have taken them out sooner. So make sure you keep an eye on them while cooking!

      Aw no! Sorry you had to throw out the first batch! At least they’re easy enough to make a 2nd batch and I’m glad to hear that it worked out for you!

    I just made these. The flavor is awesome. Mine also came out extremely crispy. Either 400 degrees is to high or 15 minutes is too long. I’ll try again and go for 8 minutes as someone else did. Great recipe though

      Thanks for the feedback Barbara! I’m glad you enjoyed it even though they were really crispy.

    I’m addicted to Stacy’s pita chips too. Combined with tzatziki, it becomes a whole meal! If I wanted to make the pita chips more sweet than savory, could I substitute the oil for butter then sprinkle cinnamon sugar? Or would the butter just burn?

      You probably could! I think maybe you could bake this on lower heat for longer to get the desired effect.

    Made the Asian Romen salad everyone loved it and asked for the recipe.

    Tried this recipe during what I thought would be a pleaseant football evening. Time is way off. I baked them for 14 mins and was not happy to say the least. Time should be between 8-10 mins. All I received was burned pita chips and let down guests.

      Hi, I can see how you would be disappointed. I would just like to point out that every person’s oven differs. Mine took 14 minutes and yours might have needed less because 1. your oven might be hotter due to how it was calibrated or used overtime and 2. the thickness of your pita to start out with. My suggestion next time is that you watch the oven every so often to make sure things aren’t going awry. I’m sorry it didn’t work out this time.
