Parmesan Pita Crisps

3 Tablespoons olive oil
teaspoon ground cumin
teaspoon ground red pepper
5 whole (5 to 6 inch) whole wheat or white pitas with pockets
1/2 cup coarsely grated Parmesan cheese
Salt, (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°. In cup, with fork, mix oil, cumin, and ground red pepper.

With knife or kitchen shears, carefully split each pita in half. Brush 1 side of pita halves with oil mixture. Cut each half into 8 wedges. Arrange wedges, oiled-side up, in 2 ungreased 15 1/2 inch by 10 1/2 inch jelly-roll pans. Sprinkle with Parmesan, and salt if you like.

Place pans on 2 oven racks and bake crisps 12 to 15 minutes or until golden, rotating pans from upper to lower racks halfway through baking for even browning. Cool crisps in pans on wire racks. Store crisps in tightly covered container or large self-sealing plastic bag up to 1 week.

Yields 80 crisps.
