this is one of my all time faves, mom taught me. I do it a bit different, just put the margerin on the split pita, I use scissors to cut and split. Then I use an italian spice combo on the light side, add garlic powder and then top with parm. I do not bake, I broil, takes maybe at most five minutes and is supper crispy. Read More

Not bad. Mine came out really dry so I served with garlic hummus. Next time I will use less Italian seasoning more garlic and add some olive oil. I served with the Bow tie sausage tomato and cream pasta recipe from this site. Love that recipe! Read More

Delicious! In fact they're so good, it's hard to eat just one! I did opt for olive oil vs. butter, but WOW were these good. You could eat them all by themselves but we dipped them in "Hummus IV" from this site which took them over the top. My only caution is watch your baking time as they can burn easily. Overall, a definite keeper! Read More

YUM. I did quadruple the garlic as we REALLY like garlic. Mine didn't come out crispy either but we didn't care anyway. We ate these with Garlic Cucumber Dip and really went to town. I always seem to find pita bread on the clearance rack so I know I'll make this quite every now and then for a fun weekend snack. Next time I might try this with EVOO and maybe double the ingredients for the garlic brushing sauce. Read More

These are really good and extremely easy to prepare. You can do the same thing with flour tortillas. Thanks Lisa. Read More

Did not come out very crispy - use olive oil next time instead of butter? Read More

These were great. I dont think 10 minutes was long enough to get them completely crispy so I will go for 12 next time. Very good served with any type of dip. Will make again as they are a great alternative to chips. Read More

Very tasty! These are so quick and easy creative and a good side when you don't want to fill up on tons of carbs. They have just enough to satisfy that craving but not fil you up. Read More
