    I tried these with 'lite-white' pita bread. Sprinkled them with Italian herbs and garlic powder, then sprayed with olive oil spray. Great, and filling! I will try with a little cajun spice sprinkled over the next batch, just to try a different flavour. Great basic recipe with endless variations. - 5/24/09
    I didn't have any pita bread handy so I took some 6 inch tortillas I had and did this with them, I added some italian seasoning, and cooked for a little bit less time and they turned out amazing! - 8/2/09
    Add a little Italian herbs to the garlic-olive oil mixture, then sprinkle the oil-brushed pita wedges with grated Parmesan before baking. Yum!!! - 8/10/09
    I have been make these for some time, but I use the Sarah Lee Whole Wheat pita bread instead of regular pita bread. It lowers the calories and fat content. - 7/18/08
    YES...these are fabulous. I used cooking spray, garlic powder, a little season salt and dried parsley. I save the bag the pitas came in and when they cool I place them right back in there. Why waste a ziploc bag, right? - 7/18/08
    I also make pita chips by spraying the chips with canola or olive oil spray and sprinkling them with cinnamon and Splenda or xylitol before baking. Yummy also! - 7/14/09
    Very easy to make! I doubled the garlic, added garlic & onion powder & cracked black pepper to the oil. I also found it best to mix the oil & let it steep for a day or 2. More intense flavors! It doesn't take much oil to coat them. I used a zipper baggy to make it easier to "brush" the chips. - 3/10/09

    I've made these with Mrs. Dash seasoning and they are great! - 7/20/09
    I actually make these plain, just a light spray of olive oil, to eat with salsa & fat free sour cream. It completely kills my craving for potato chips & dip, my weakness in the evenings. - 7/25/09

    Wonderful! I love pita chips, but hate paying high prices for a tiny bag at the grocery store. I had never considered making them at home. They turned out great! My husband said he would prefer them with some sort of dip (which would be good) but I like them by themselves. Lots of flavor! - 5/13/08

    Yummy. I used garlic flavored evoo and sprinkled some lemon pepper on it. My kids and dh ate them all. I will have to find a recipe for pita bread so I can make more without breaking the bank. :) - 2/11/09
    I love this recipe! Although, I like it better when the oven is a little bit hotter and the chips are a little crisper. It's a good one to play around with that way! - 9/5/08
    I just tried it...used spray canola oil, and garlic/herb seasoning on onion pita bread in my toaster oven. Loved it! This will be great for those times I want something crunchy and am sick of raw veggies, LOL! - 5/8/08
    Yuuuumeee! When my fat intake is a little high for the day, I forgo the olive oil and simply spray with butter Pam. It's nearly as delicious and really kills my cravings for crunch! Garlic powder instead of the minced garlic works well when you're in a rush, whole wheat pita is higher in fiber! - 7/18/08
    I am so excited to find this recipe! I've been wanting to find a substitute for unhealthy chips and dip, and this is it! These were delicious and were perfect for dipping in spicy hummus! I added a sprinkling of Lawry's Salt-free 17 seasoning for some extra flavor. My husband loved them, too! - 7/26/09
    These are really great. I added a bit of curry powder and red pepper... new staple in our house. - 12/17/08
    My husband and I loved them it was great along a side salad for lunch. The chips satisfied the need for an occassional snack. - 7/8/08

    My whole family loved these. My kids said make more for after school snack! - 6/2/09
    I just made these using whole wheat pita bread and added some fresh Parmesean cheese on the top of a few once they were cooked. DELICIOUS! - 8/22/08
    Great with a salad! - 7/18/08
    This is a great recipe. I used low carb/lowfat pitas and they are awesome. And you can make different variations of it depending on what you season them with. I will definitely make these again! - 8/26/09
    easy, and healthier than store-bought! - 7/14/09
    This is good for an quick appetizers w/ your favorite dip!!! - 1/5/09

    Made these with whole wheat pita and added a little salt. - 1/4/09
