The most difficult part of this recipe involves splitting open pita pockets, and even that doesn’t have to be perfect. As long as you have a bit of za’atar, the Middle Eastern spice blend of sesame seeds, thyme, and sumac, on hand, you’re a few minutes away from homemade pita chips. (See more about this seasoning blend here.) Sometimes I even make this with one pita in the toaster oven.

The yogurt sauce packs a punch, with bright mint, tangy yogurt and a raw garlic bite. Leave the garlic out if you’re wary, but I promise, it adds the perfect kick!

Za'atar Pita Chips with Yogurt Dip


  • 4 tablespoons


  • 5 tablespoons

    olive oil

  • 2

    large pitas (or 4 small size pitas)

  • 1 cup

    plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon

    mint, chopped

  • 1

    small garlic clove, grated or minced

  • 1/8 teaspoon




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine za'atar and olive oil in a small bowl to form a paste. Cut one pita open around the edge to create two rounds. Repeat with remaining pita. Place pita rounds on a baking sheet. Spread za'atar mixture over rough sides of pita rounds using the back of a spoon. Bake until edges are golden, about 5-7 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and cut into wedges.

  2. Combine yogurt, mint, garlic, and salt. Serve along side pita chips.
