Homemade Pita Chips With Za’atar
If you’re looking for a great way to make unique pita chips at home, these Baked Za’atar Pita Chips are the answer! Crispy chips coated with a delicious Za’atar mixture, these will be a huge hit!
Zaatar bread is a middle eastern delicacy called Manakish Za’atar where you bake a flatbread that is topped with a Zaatar spice mix, olive oil, and sometimes olives or cheese. It is a bit complicated to put together in a short time, but this recipe is an easy twist with the same flavors.
One person’s favorite way to pair these may be totally different from someone else’s. For example, I enjoy eating them with a little combo of feta cheese and red peppers, but the rest of my family prefers hummus. Try it with one thing the first time you make them and pair them another way the next time!
What Is Za’atar Seasoning And What Does It Taste Like?
Za’atar is a middle eastern spice blend. It is a combination of herb seasonings including dried oregano, thyme, and/or marjoram, with sumac and toasted sesame seeds. This provides a unique woodsy, floral, tangy, and nutty flavor that is tough to explain until you taste it.
- This pita chips recipe is perfect for using up leftover pita bread.
- You can use white or whole wheat pita bread for this recipe.
- Make sure that you’ve got some Za’atar topping on each of your pita bread chips before baking them.

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Step 3: Place the pita triangles in a large bowl and drizzle them with extra-virgin olive oil. Mix to cover them.
Step 4: Sprinkle the Za’atar spice mix in the bowl while moving the pita pieces around. Make sure that you’ve spread it onto each of the pita triangles.

Can I Use Store-Bought Pita Bread For Making Za’atar Pita Chips?
Yes! There is no need to bake homemade pita bread for this recipe. Use store-bought pita or leftover pita from a restaurant to cut down on your prep time.
Can I Make Za’atar Pita Chips Without An Oven?
