  • 4 regular pita breads (khubz)
  • ¼ cup good olive oil (60ml)
  • ½ tsp salt (I used Maldon here)
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp za'atar
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin


  • Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C
  • Cut your pitas into eight triangular slices. Mix olive oil and spices together, and brush each chip (front and back) with the seasoned oil.
  • Place chips in a single layer on a baking sheet, and bake for 7 minutes - after 7 minutes flip them over and bake an additional 5-7 minutes, or until fully browned but not burned.
  • Cool for 5 minutes on paper towel to absorb any excess oil, and serve!


NB. Thinner, Syrian style bread will need less time (6-8 minutes total) rather than thicker bread.
