Crackers have absorbed most of the snack isle. They have creeped into the deli section and overwhelmed cabinets everywhere. They are hip to crunch and versatile to many a topping. They are a universal treat, no matter what age there is a cracker somewhere to appeal to one’s tastes.
This super simple recipe makes some of the most artisan looking treats in little to no time, offering you the freedom to concoct a snack appeal to the most random of your taste bud instincts. Hey, and you don’t have to tell people it took no time, just let them be amazed with the homemade nature.
- 1 Package of instant pizza dough (best choice or great value brands)
- Olive oil
- Pumpkin seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, etc.
- Salt, pepper, cumin, etc.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
Prepare the dough as described by the package instructions.
Mix in half your seeds (if using) into the dough thoroughly.
Spread the dough out with your fingers onto a well oiled parchment sheet fitted to a cookie sheet.
Make thinner than you would like the final cracker to be as the dough rises a bit in the oven.
Drizzle with olive oil and top with more seeds, salt, pepper, cumin seed or whatever toppings you desire. Cinnamon sugar would be good as will for a sweeter take on the treat.
Bake for 30-60 minutes, until crispy (this is a long slow process as you are essentially drying out the dough and you don’t want it to burn before it’s ready).
