Pita bread – 8 pitas (5-inch diameter)
Roasted garlic oil – 3 tablespoons
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese – 2 cups, freshly grated
Lemon zest – 2 teaspoons, freshly zested
Oregano – 1 teaspoon, dried, lightly crushed
Black pepper – 1  teaspoons, freshly ground
Sea salt –   teaspoon
Crushed red pepper flakes –   teaspoon

Hint:

There is something very earthy about oregano and it really makes the other ingredients pop, but it can be overpowering. That is why Marc Sievers suggests using dried oregano for this recipe.

Like all great game day snacks, these Pita Crisps pair great with beer, but they also go amazingly well with a variety of cocktails, wines, and spirits.
