Pita chips large

Crunchy is my weakness, so you'll hear a lot of crunching between these book covers. Legal crunching. I'm also a pushover for anything salty. I know lots of salt is not good for you. On these pita chips and tortilla chips, the salt can be replaced with a sprinkling of spices.

Makes 64 chips (8 per serving)

INGREDIENTS
4 six-inch pita pockets
Nonstick olive oil spray or 1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt to taste

Optional Seasonings:
cayenne, ground cumin, dried rosemary, chopped fresh dill

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Split the pita pockets to form 8 single rounds. Lightly spray or brush the rounds with the olive oil, cut each one into 8 wedges, and bake them on a sheet pan in the preheated oven for 8 minutes or until golden and crisp. Sprinkle with salt and one of the optional seasonings, if desired.
