Please forgive me if this is old news but it's something I've just discovered and I feel the need to share it.

Cut pittas into strips 2 x 8 cm
Drizzle with olive oil
Sprinkle with crushed garlic
Place on tray in oven at hottest temperature for 5 minutes or until browned.
Turn over and brown the other side.
Serve with soup as a replacement for bread.

As far as I'm concerned, this sort of deliciousness can never be considered old news, David.

What a great idea. And also very good timing. I just recently made pita for the first time. It was dead easy and the results were fantastic! We, of course, are hogs and have already finished all but one pita.

I think we neeeeeeeeed to try making pita chips with that last pita....

(account of our first adventure in pita making on the barbecue)

Well, I thought this pita chip thing was a good idea... we tried this and not only are we deaf, but we can't eat any of the chips. They're awful.

It seems that some of the instructions are missing:

  1. When the timer bell rings, and the pita chips aren't quite done, RESET the timer.
  2. Under no circumstances should the pita chip maker leave the kitchen to set the table, go upstairs to change the sheets, check e-mail, etc. etc. etc.
  3. Disable smoke alarm BEFORE removing black pita chips from oven
  4. In the case of pitch black pita chips, remove smoking tray (complete with charred chips) to the back garden and turn on fans to clear acrid smoke from the house. If step 3 has been disregarded, disable loudly clanging smoke alarm until the air is clear.
Oh oh

(The really sad thing is that we had no pitas left so couldn't try again. stomp)

It's one thing to immolate your house; it's quite different to do the same thing to an apartment building. A few years ago, I put a smoked turkey leg in a pot of water to extract all that flavour. So far, so good. I had left it on High (mistake #1) and had then gone to sleep (mistake #2) . I woke up when I heard sirens outside - the Fire Dept! The water had all evaporated and the turkey leg was producing (tons) of blue acrid smoke which was traveling throughout the whole building!
The Fire guys who woke me up were not impressed with my story!
I now NEVER leave the kitchen during any critical process! Amen.
