How to prepare this Recipe?

  1. Since there is no yeast involved, making the dough is quite easy.
  2. Allow the dough to rest: Prepare all the ingredients and, as with the Cheese Naan Bread (see image on the left), let the dough rest before rolling it out.
  3. Cut and shape: Use a knife to cut tiny dough nuggets (see figure below, right) and roll each one separately. Transfer them to the baking sheet pan.
  4. Baking: sprinkle with salt and seeds, and mist with water. Bake until dried out and crispy. Store in sealed jars or boxes.

It's a one-way trip if you've never prepared olive oil crackers at home. They're simple to produce with basic ingredients and will turn you into a movie star. which, naturally, you are. But no credit card can buy that jaw-dropping moment when they discover you truly make crackers at home.

It's such a bakery and supermarket staple that some people find it difficult to believe that we bakers like doing this. For me, working with flour has therapeutic benefits. Very soothing, and the aromas! There's nothing like freshly baked goods straight out of the oven to make you feel okay.

The Method for Making Homemade Crackers

It's quite simple to make olive oil crackers, easier than you would think! It only takes a few easy steps and five minutes to bake them to the ideal crispy texture in the oven.

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and herbs in a bowl. For this recipe, I used rosemary, but you can truly use any herb you like, or leave it entirely if you prefer a plain cracker. Combine the olive oil and water in a measuring cup, then stir into the flour mixture.

Slice the crackers. To cut dough into olive oil crackers, use a bench scraper, pizza cutter, or sharp chef's knife. I have mine around 1 1/2 x 2 inches but feel free to cut them any size you like, just be aware that it may alter how long they bake. Using a fork or toothpick, pierce each cracker.

Bake the crackers for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the center is slightly browned and the sides are black. Return them to the oven for a minute or two until some darker areas appear if the center is still pale. 

  • Mix until a smooth ball forms.
  • Press the dough onto a baking sheet with your hands after dividing it in half. The thinner the dough, the crispier the olive oil crackers will be, so aim for a lovely, thin texture.
  • Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden and crispy. The thickness or thinness of the dough will determine how long it takes to bake.
  • After letting them cool, serve!

How to Keep Handmade Crackers Fresh?

The best way to preserve olive oil crackers is in an airtight container. Place them in a plastic storage jar and they will last for approximately a week. Before rolling and baking, the dough can be prepared in advance and frozen in a ball.

Tips & Tricks


After you have a decent dough with no dry patches and just the right amount of moisture let it sit for an hour. For the dough to become sufficiently supple to roll thin it must relax. Gluten is present in flour and develops during processing. This gluten structure relaxes during the resting phase enabling the dough to become more elastic.


Your olive oil crackers will be thick and undercooked if the dough nuggets are not rolled thinly. The dough has to rest further if you roll it and it shrinks back. After a few minutes cover it with a fresh kitchen towel and give it another go. It will roll to the appropriate thickness eventually.

To prevent dough from sticking to your knuckles lightly coat them with olive oil on both the front and rear of them.

This place is great for rough and tumble. The dough doesn't have to be silky. Let the ball sit in the dish while you prepare the parchment paper and wash your hands.

Transfer the dough onto a sheet pan-sized piece of parchment paper. Spread out the dough as thinly and evenly as you can avoid overcooking certain crackers and undercooking others. Should flour be required at all to keep the dough from sticking to the rolling pin, it should be minimal. Turn the parchment paper often to create a rough rectangle.


I mist the rolled portions with water and then top them with sesame seeds and Maldon salt. 

To make them stick to the dough lightly press them. When you make the dough ball you might want to add the sesame seeds since many of them will fall anyway after baking. As a result, the seeds are part of the dough rather than a topping or leave them out completely.


If stored in airtight tins or containers, they will keep nicely for a week. The best metal containers have excellent lids.


Whether it's a family get-together, a special celebration, or just a relaxing night in, this olive oil cracker is ideal for every occasion. To sum up, the Olive Oil Cracker blends classic recipes with wholesome ingredients to create a delicious and healthier snack choice.
