  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!)
