Serves: 10Hands-on: 20 minutesTotal: 1 hour 35 minutesDifficulty: Medium

Serves: 10


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil


  • Sift flour and salt together in a large bowl. Mix in the extra-virgin olive oil and water. Either by hand on a floured surface, or in a stand mixer with a dough-hook attachment, knead dough for 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Shape dough into a ball, adding more flour as necessary, so dough is not too sticky. Cut into 20 same-sized pieces then form each piece into a ball. Rub a few drops of olive oil on each ball, cover with a dish towel, and allow to rest at room temperature for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Roll each dough ball to approximately 1⁄8 inch thick and place on a floured baking sheet. Prick each cracker with fork. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container
