khobz pita crisps

We entertain a lot. A lot. Most weekends, and even some weeknights. It’s a habit that adds up over time but there’s not much I love more than sharing good food with great friends.

If you’ve ever been at the supermarket and wondered why lavosh, crispbread and crackers are so expensive, you are not alone. After all, they’re just toasted bits of dough, right? And they’re only snacks. With a bit of DIY and for under $1.50, you can make them an endless variation of them – with sea salt, zaatar, cumin or chilli and lime. Here’s how. They’re a healthy snack (especially if you use wholemeal khobz bread) and even if you cheat and buy dips, people will still be impressed that you ‘made’ crisps.

Pita Crisps

1 pack khobz bread
cooking spray
sea salt, or other spice (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 190C.
  2. Roughly cut up the khobz into bite sized pieces. They don’t all have to be the same shape or size – just makes them look rustic.
  3. Lay them on a baking sheet and spray  lightly with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt or spices if you’re using.
  4. Bake for 4-7 minutes, making sure to check them every two minutes. They should be slightly coloured, but not golden brown. This will depend on your oven – once you’ve worked out the perfect baking time, it’s easy to repeat.
  5. Serve with dips or just eat them as a snack.
