Make your own Gluten-Free Pita Chips at home! They're extra crispy and really easy to make! The base recipe is super simple and you can add any spices you like, the possibilities are endless!
What's Great About This Recipe
Making your own pita chips at home couldn't be easier! You only need three main ingredients. The rest is up to you! I decided to go with Za'atar Seasoning, it's my favorite homemade spice blend and it goes really well with any Middle Eastern food, just like pita bread.
They are super crispy, golden around the edges, and the perfect vessel for scooping up your favorite dip! The perfect low-carb snack made right in your oven in less than 20 minutes!
Where to Get Gluten-Free Pita Bread
- Make your own! I like this Gluten-Free Vegan Pita Bread recipe by Dolly and Oatmeal.
- If I get it store-bought, it's from a local company here in Toronto called Aidan's Gluten-Free. Ask your grocery store if they carry any or search online for a gluten-free brand in your city.
- If you're not gluten-free, this recipe works the same with any regular pita!
How to make the chips extra crispy
- Use oil in a spray or use a pastry brush to brush the pita bread with oil. This way it's evenly oiled and the chips will get super crispy!
- Don't overcrowd your baking sheet. If you place them too close to each other, it can create steam and they won't crisp up properly.
- Flip the chips once or twice while cooking, this helps them to crisp up well on both sides.
The Best Seasoning for Pita Chips
- The recipe calls for Za'atar Spice Blend but you can use any seasoning you'd like here! Here are some ideas:
- garlic powder + onion powder + smoked paprika + sea salt
- chili powder + cumin + oregano + onion powder + sea salt
- thyme + oregano + sumac + sea salt
- thyme + rosemary + sea salt
- Everything Bagel Seasoning (because why not, right? I haven't tried it but I bet it would be delicious!)
What to Serve with These Chips
- Goat Cheese Lentil Dip with Dill and Capers
- Plain Hummus
- Beet Hummus (recipe coming in 3 days!)
- Baba Ganoush (eggplant dip)
- any other dip you enjoy!
How to store these chips
- Store them in an airtight container at room temperature.
- They will last for 3-4 days but they're best consumed the day you make them. I find they lose their crunch after the first day. This is because of the gluten-free flour. Regular wheat pita chips should stay crunchy for longer.
Pita Chips FAQ
Pitas are soft, thicker than Tortillas with a pocket so you can fill them. Tortilla wraps are much thinner. Both can be used to make chips.
Pita is made in the oven and has a pocket. Flatbread is made on the stove and doesn't have a pocket.
No. Pita is made with wheat. If you're looking for gluten-free pita bread, it has to say so on the package.
Yes! You can use any pita you have.
It depends on your preference. If you separate the pita, the chips will be crunchy. If you don't they'll be slightly crispy on the outside but still soft and chewy on the inside.

Storing: These pita chips are best eaten on the same day. I find they lose their crunch after the first day because they're made with gluten-free flour.

I would love to make a homemade Gluten-Free Pita Chips! This will surely be loved by my family!
I LOVE that seasoning on these chips and that they are so so crispy crunchy! Gluten free is always a bonus, too!
Such a great solution since I find it really difficult to scout out gluten free pita chips! And so, so easy! Love the thought that I can switch up spices, but I'm a za'atar fan, like you, so that's a go-to!
What's lame is that I've never had pita chips. I need to try these soon! They sound so tasty and easy.
Oh, I would have no problem eating these on the same day. ;) I have this problem with snacks. These look so easy and tasty, too!

This recipe was so easy peasy to make! This turned out to be the best snack for my kids (served with some homemade hummus).
I love snacking on crunchy stuff but try to avoid store-bought chips at all costs! This is going straight into my healthier snack options list, it ticks all the boxes. Especially since I adore za'atar and no store-bought crisps deliver that!
This is perfect for me since I have celiac disease! I love making them to go on a mediterranean platter with feta and hummus. Thank you!
These pita chips look great and the seasoning really ties things together. Can't wait to try!
I am allergic to avocado. What oil would be a good substitute? Olive oil? Thank you!

You can use olive oil, though its smoke point tends to be lower than other oils, around 350-400F. I'd recommend safflower oil or sesame oil (the raw, light-colored one, not dark toasted sesame oil). If it's not in a spray, you can use silicone pastry brush to apply it evenly. Any oil you'd normally use for high-heat cooking works. :)
