I sort of made up this recipe, and it turned out to be pretty good. I was trying to imitate a pita with garlic butter sauce appetizer this one restaurant makes.

We were very disappointed in this recipe which I followed EXACTLY. It was edible but the taste was lemon not garlic. Sorry for the poor rating but I won't make this again. Read More

Very good. Just be careful to watch the garlic or it can burn and be bitter. I had one pita round left so I halved the recipe and tried it that way. I liked all the flavors together but I didn't like how the garlic didn't all stick to the pita. I think I'll make a garlic paste next time to see if that makes me happier. Thanks for sharing!

I'd made a similar recipe before but never thought of adding the lemon...it really brightens it up. I only cook about 5 mins though. Read More

Mabye a bit lemony. More instruction required on how to get them to fry up without burning chopped garlic. Remember to slowly sprinkle in garlic powder to keep it from bunching up. Read More

I LOVE pita chips!! A more simple version...cut pockets into 2 rounds. Spray both sides of each round with olive oil/sprinkle w/garlic salt & whatever other spices you favor. Cut into wedges & spread out on cookie sheet. Bake at 325 for 10 min-flip them over & bake till golden. GRRREAT with chunky salsa! Read More

This is just fried pita? This tasted similar to naan. My world has changed and I might need to start frying all my pita bread. So good! Just watch it closely, because it does brown really fast. Read More
