8 servings


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup bread flour

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

  • 1 cup water, or as needed


  1. Mix whole wheat flour, bread flour, olive oil, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Mix in enough water to bring dough together.

  2. Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface. Let rest for 10 to 20 minutes.

  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  4. Divide dough into 6 to 8 pieces. Roll out each piece to paper-thin thickness. Transfer pieces of dough to the lined baking sheets; cut into strips or squares.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and edges curl up, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Add seasonings such as garlic salt, oregano, other Italian herbs, or more adventurous flavors to the dough before baking.

The thinner the dough (and the longer it bakes), the crispier the cracker will be. Thicker dough will result in a softer cracker that is very similar to pita bread (and what a tasty alternative that turns out to be!)
