  • In a large bowl, whisk together the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour and salt. Add the extra virgin olive oil and ½ cup of water. Stir with a wooden spoon, adding more water if needed.
  • As soon as the dough starts to form, tip on a floured surface and knead until you get a smooth and soft dough.
  • Divide the dough in 3 equal portions and roll into a very thin rectangle.
  • Place in a baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, brush the dough with a bit of water, sprinkle with salt and desired seeds (sesame, poppy, caraway, fennel, sunflower, zaatar etc…)
  • Bake in a preheated oven to 200°C until nicely brown, about 10 mins.
  • Cool on a wire rack and break the crackers using your hands giving them a rustic look.
  • They keep well for up to 1 week stored in an airtight container.
