Stage 1

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sumac and lemon juice and whisk together. Add garlic soon thereafter and keep whisking
  3. Slowly add in olive oil as you continue to whisk in order to make dressing. Let sit

Stage 2

  1. In a separate bowl, toss pita bread with olive oil, coarse sea salt, and sumac
  2. Lay and spread pita chips evenly on baking sheet and place in oven. Set timer for 10 minutes - the chips might need slightly more time (up to 15 minutes), but the end result should be golden brown and crispy
