Parmesan Pita Crisps

These Parmesan Pita Crisps are perfect with my Roasted Artichoke Hummus.

Because they’re homemade and fresh-from-the-oven, they taste amazing and feel like a special treat.

And they contain more healthy fiber, protein, iron, and calcium than your typical bagged tortilla chip.

They have a satisfying crunch with a delicious hint of garlic and Parmesan.

Here is everything you’ll need to get started.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.

Grab your first slice of whole wheat pita bread and cut into eight equal pieces.

Break each triangle in half at the seam to create a total of 16 triangles.  Repeat with the second pita.

Arrange some of the pita triangles on a parchment-lined baking sheet so they do not overlap (work in batches).

Brush just a dab of extra virgin olive oil over each one.

Sprinkle plenty of garlic powder over each slice.

Grate some fresh Parmesan.  Sprinkle the Parmesan over each slice.

Then bake in the oven for about 5 minutes, or until the slices turn crisp and golden.  Watch these carefully – they’ll burn quickly!

Serve with: tomato soup, spinach dip, guacamole, salsa, my Roasted Artichoke Hummus… you get the idea!  They’re great with just about anything.

Enjoy this crispy, cheesy snack!

Here is the complete recipe:

Parmesan Pita Crisps

Total Time:  15 minutes

      Enjoy your party! I’m hoping to start a small garden this year. But I have no idea what I’m doing at this point, so we’ll see how that goes 🙂

    This is so genious. I love the idea! Will definitely try this very soon! My boyfriend doesn’t like artichokes – but this dip might just convince him otherwise. 🙂

      Who knows – stranger things have happened 🙂 My husband doesn’t really like artichokes and does like this hummus, so maybe!
