Recipe: Pita Chips (WCN! July '10)

These are for the hummus.  Za'atar is a spice blend used throughout the Mediterranean and Middle East made up of sumac, thyme, sesame seeds, hyssop, and oregano--not too easy to track down, but awesome in this application.  If you have fancy salt lying around, this is the place for it.

Pita Chips
1 package pitas
olive oil

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Pour some olive oil onto the cutting board and rub a pita in it.  Rub another pita on that one to take off the excess.  Repeat until all the pitas have a thin layer of oil.  Put them on a sheet pan in a single layer, add the za'atar and salt, and put in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
