Pita Chips

You can make your own pita chips fairly easily. Not only are they delicious but they take very little time and the variations are nearly limitless*.
One package (or more) of pita bread
Oil* of your choice ~ typically we use Olive Oil
Preheat your oven to 375.  Then start preparing the pita bred.
First cut the pita bred or pocket in half as if you were planning on stuffing it.
Then cut again in wedges like you were cutting a pizza.

Each pocket should result in a total of eight wedges.

 Split the individual wedges in half and lay them on an un-greased baking sheet.

Coat each triangle with a light dab of oil and sprinkle with a tiny amount of salt (optional).

Bake at 375 for about eight minutes until golden brown. Enjoy! 

* You can use any type of oil or none at all. Sunflower oil adds a wonderful nutty flavor. My personal favorites are basil infused olive oil and the oil that sun dried tomatoes are packed in. The possibilities are endless. You can also use a milder oil, like canola and then instead of sprinkling with salt you can sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. It probably goes without saying but if you make your own pita bread these would even be more delicious!
