I was going to combine this homemade pita chip recipe with my creamy buffalo hummus recipe post, but they turned out so well that I decided they needed their own post.

They could not be easier, so I promise I won’t talk type too much!

All you need to make crunchy, flavorful, oh-so-wonderful pita chips at home is:

pitas (I prefer whole wheat, white is fine)
olive oil
garlic powder
your preferred seasoning (I used Mrs. Dash table seasoning)
sea salt or other flaky salt

Recipe Author Lynn April
Servings: 32 chips


  • 4 whole wheat (or white) pitas each cut into 8 wedges*
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon preferred seasoning I used Mrs. Dash table seasoning
  • sea salt or other flaky salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Arrange pita wedges on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a small prep bowl, combine olive oil, garlic powder, and preferred seasoning. Mix together until thoroughly combined.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush each wedge with seasoned olive oil. Flip each wedge over and brush the other side. Sprinkle sea salt over all of the wedges.
  • Bake pita wedges for 10-11 minutes until browned. They will crisp up into "chip" texture as they cool. Store pita chips in an airtight container or large zip-top bag at room temperature up to 2 weeks. Enjoy with your favorite hummus or other dips.


*Each batch of 4 whole pitas (32 individual chips) fits perfectly on one large baking sheet. Use a new baking sheet per each batch.

  1. Gah! Homemade pita chips are one of the things I miss most about being gluten-free! These look INCREDIBLE, Lynn. You may have just convinced me to try my hand at making homemade g-free pitas just so I can make these!! <3

    1. I have been wanting to make homemade pitas for a long time! I think you should tackle them and get to making some pita chips!

  2. Oh yum! I have some gluten free wraps that are never going to be made into sandwiches, but would be gobbled up as homemade ‘pita’ chips! I can’t wait to make these and dunk them in some of your latest hummus recipe! Deliciousness just waiting to happen!

  3. Wow! YUM! These look so crisp and a million times better than store-bought ones! I can’t wait to try!
