  • 4 pieces large pita bread white or whole wheat
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons za'atar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper or cayenne for heat


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with foil. Spray with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Using a pair of kitchen scissors, cut the pita bread in half and then in half again. Continue doing this until you have chip-sized pieces (small triangles).
  • Place the pita triangles in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil then sprinkle with za'atar, salt and pepper.
  • Toss well until pita is evenly coated with oil and spices. This is a great time to use your hands - your best tools in the kitchen!
  • Spread pita in an even layer amongst both baking sheets and bake until golden brown and crispy, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.
