Only 4 ingredients are needed to make it, most of which are probably already in your pantry! You can customize these crackers however you want and make a wonderfully crispy snack that make your tastebuds sing.

  • Total Time: 1 hr 10 mins


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sourdough discard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)


  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • pinch of dried rosemary


Making the Dough

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the sourdough discard and olive oil.
  2. Gradually add the all-purpose flour and salt to the bowl. Mix until a dough forms.
  3. When the mixture resembles your typical dough, knead it lightly for a couple of minutes until it becomes smooth and uniform.
  4. Shape the dough into a ball. Cover it with plastic wrap or a damp cloth, then let it rest at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

Preparing the Dough

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. While waiting for the oven to heat, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Then, on a floured surface, roll out the risen dough as thinly as possible.
  4. Transfer the rolled-out dough onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. If you want to add any optional seasonings, this is the time to sprinkle them over the dough and lightly press them in.
  6. Use a pizza cutter (or a sharp knife, if you don’t have one) to cut the dough into thin strips. You can also cut them into squares, for a more traditional cracker look.
  7. Prick each cracker with a fork to prevent excessive puffing during baking.

Baking the Crackers

  1. Bake the crackers in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and crispy. Keep a close eye, as baking times may vary depending on thickness.
  2. Once baked, remove the crackers from the oven. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. They will become even crispier as they cool down.


  • If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour. Incorporate the flour one tablespoon at a time, until the dough has the right consistency and becomes easy to handle.
  • If you want thinner crackers, you can divide the dough into smaller portions and roll them out separately.
  • Feel free to get creative with the seasonings and toppings.
  • Store the completely cooled sourdough crackers in an airtight container to maintain their crispness.
