Pita chips before and after baking

The chips get baked in a moderate oven for up to 10 mins. Watch for the colour change and turn off the oven. They will continue to toast for a minute or so. 

If triangle chips with salt don’t tick all of your boxes, then here is a 2nd style of chip shapes for you with dried herbs to season:
