Pita Recipe for Pita Chips?

I used the Pita recipe on here and wound up with some amazing Pitas.  They are a little on the thicker end, which got me wondering how to go about making pita chips.  Is there a good recipe for Pita chips, or some way to take the other pita recipe and convert them into Pita chips?  I am trying to replicate the Stacy's Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips.  Anyone?

EFaden,


 


Pita chips are surprisingly easy. Take the pitas you've made or bought and cut them into triangles. Place them on a cookie sheet and spray/brush them with some olive oil. Then shake on some cinnamon and sugar (or salt and pepper for a more savory option that's great with dips)


Preheat your oven to 400F and cook for about 7 minutes. Be careful--they can burn pretty easily.


Hope that helps.

The problem is the ones I have just seem a bit too thick.... I am looking for more thin crisps.  I was thinking of making another batch of the pitas and rolling them to somewhere between 1/8" and 1/16".  Would that work?  I was thinking about doing that, and then cutting into wedges and then "splitting the pocket", so each wedge actually makes two chips.

Yes, I forgot to mention that--I would definitely split the pocket. I haven't made chips from my own pitas yet (I usually just use whole wheat pitas from Trader Joes.) I don't have any with me, so I couldn't say about thickness, but splitting the wedges up is definitely a good idea. You'll have to experiment with putting the cinnamon and sugar on one or two sides to find which you prefer.
