Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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!)

These crackers are very bland, perfect if you are looking for a base for a flavorful topping. However, it’s very easy to add additional flavors, as I added minced fresh rosemary to half the batch. I docked the crackers just as a precaution of them puffing up. Also, I made the crackers very thin and they didn’t need more than 10 minutes of baking, so I recommend checking them often when baking.

I made these crackers with spelt flour and they turned out really well. I made them with my pasta maker instead of rolling them out, which I found faster and less messy. I brushed the tops with olive oil then sprinkled on some onion powder and sesame seeds. I didn't bother cutting them into cracker size servings, but left them as long lasagna type lengths to be broken to size as they were eaten. They disappeared in a flash!! Read More

I like the recipe, but instead of using salt I used adobo seasoning. The first batch, I set the timer for 15 minutes. After 12 minutes I smelled them burning. Had to throw the first batch away. The second batch came out perfect after 8 minutes! I don't know if I rolled mine thinner, but "paper thin" sounds pretty thin to me. The third batch I sprinkled parmesan cheese and a little more adobo. After 8 minutes I had crackers so delicious that I will never buy them at the store again!! Read More

i'm rating this a four star even though i tossed them. it's my fault and can't blame the recipe. i feel it has potential as i have made similar crackers and they were great. i forgot to add the olive oil so these crackers were dry and very very brittle. Crack your teeth brittle. i will certainly try them again with ALL of the ingredients and update my rating. Read More
