Pita Crackers

Recipe

We love making these simple pita crackers. Cut open a pita bread—whole-wheat or white—and cut each half of the bread into triangles. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle on the flavorings of your choice. You can make the crackers a day or two ahead of time; seal in a plastic bag and keep in a cool spot. This recipe makes 24 crackers, but it can easily be doubled or tripled.

Yield: Makes 24 crackers

Ingredients

  • 2 whole pita breads, whole-wheat or white
  • About 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Flavorings, as desired (see below)

Directions

1. Place a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.

2. Cut the pita breads open into 2 round halves. Cut each circle into 6 triangles; you should have a total of 24 triangles. Lay the triangles on 2 baking sheets with the cut sides up. Lightly brush the bread with the oil. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper and any other flavoring choice.

3. Bake the triangles for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Add a pinch of the following on top of the olive oil on each cracker:

Garlic salt

Sesame or poppy seeds

Chopped fresh rosemary, thyme, chives, mint, oregano, verbena, or any of your favorite herbs

½ teaspoon ground cumin, dash of cayenne, and ½ teaspoon garam masala or curry mixed together
