  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt


  • In a large bowl combine flour and salt. Add the water and olive oil. Mix together until crumbly. 
  • Form dough into a ball. Divide dough into thirds and cover dough with a clean towel.
  • Working with one ball of dough at a time, roll out dough into a rectangular shape on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough to 1/16" thick.
  • Brush dough lightly with water. Sprinkle sesame seeds and salt over top.
  • Cut dough into 2" by 4" rectangular pieces using a pastry or pizza wheel. 
  • Place cut crackers on an ungreased baking sheet. 
  • Bake in a 450 degree oven for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Cool on a baking rack.
  • Repeat with remaining dough. 
  • Store crackers in a air tight container. If crackers lose their crispness, simply reheat for 3-5 minutes in a hot oven. 


Other toppings to try: poppy seeds, caraway seeds, cracked black pepper, or rosemary.
