Homemade Crackers

Cook Time:10 Minutes

Nutritional Information

Homemade crackers are easy and can be adapted to suit your tastes.


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (plus more for brushing over the dough)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Add-ins (sesame seeds, poppy seeds, rosemary, spices, etc.)


  • 1. Place flour in a mixing bowl and make a well in the center. Pour in salt, olive oil, water, lemon juice, and desired add-ins. Mix well. Dough should come together and make a ball. Add a little more flour if dough is still sticky. On a clean floured surface, knead dough for approximately eight minutes, until smooth. Cover the ball of dough with a little olive oil and allow to rest for 30 minutes. After dough has rested, break off a small section (about 1/4 of dough) and proceed to roll out into the thickness of a cracker. Coat dough with a little flour and work on a floured surface to avoid sticking. Once rolled out, cut into desired shape (mine were about two inches wide by 10 inches long). Place on cookie sheet and brush each cracker generously with olive oil. Sprinkle with fine grain salt and additional toppings, if desired. You will need to press the toppings into the dough a bit to prevent them from falling off the cracker. Bake at 375F for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
