If using thin pitas , do not slit it in half.
You may use regular salt and skip garlic.
Use herbs of your choice.
If you notice that pitas aren't crunchy enough then place in the oven for 2-3 more minutes because every oven is different.
You may do za'atar , black pepper or cayenne pepper instead of smoked paprika
These chips stay well in an air tight container for 2 days.
