Healthy and delicious snacks are great for parties or for lazy days in front of the TV! If you’ve been on my blog once or twice, I’m sure you know that I have an addiction to making crackers! So it was only a matter of time before these vegan Pizza Crackers had to happen!

These crackers contain dried oregano and tomato paste – these contribute to the typical pizza flavor. They are so flavorful that you can eat them on their own. Or serve them with hummus (like I did)!

How to make Pizza Crackers

You will only need a couple of basic ingredients to make these pizza-flavored crackers:

  • all-purpose flour
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • dried oregano
  • dried basil
  • tomato paste
  • water
  • oil

The basic steps

As always you can find the full recipe in the recipe box at the end of the post.

But to give you an idea of how easy these crackers are to make, these are the main steps:

Step 1: Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together the water and tomato paste. Then add to the dry ingredients the oil and tomato water mixture.

Step 2: Stir to combine, then use your hands to knead a smooth dough. You might have to add a bit more flour (if the dough is too sticky) or water (if it is too crumbly).

Step 3: Roll out the dough on a lightly floured parchment paper as thin as possible.

Expert tip: This is the most important step. Really take your time rolling out the dough as thin and evenly as possible. Otherwise, your crackers will end up too hard or chewy and unevenly baked.

Then use a pizza cutter to cut out the individual crackers. Carefully pull the parchment paper with the crackers onto a baking tray and bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes until crispy.

Tips for making the perfect crispy crackers

  • The consistency of the dough: Flour, water, even altitude matter when making the dough, so it’s best to trust your instincts a bit when making the dough. Add water until you can make a smooth dough. If you’re not sure, it’s best to make it too wet than too dry, you can always work more flour into the dough while rolling out the crackers. A wetter dough is easier to roll out than one that is hard and crumbly.
  • The cracker thickness: Roll out the dough as thin and as even as possible. This ensures even baking! If they are not thin enough, they will be rather chewy than crispy. The best way to do this is to roll out the dough on a lightly floured parchment paper, cut them, and then carefully pull the parchment paper with the crackers onto the baking sheet. It also helps if you take your time rolling out the dough..sometimes it looks like it doesn’t get any thinner. Then I walk away for one minute and come back..then the dough has relaxed a bit and can be rolled out easier and thinner.
  • Rolling pin: A proper rolling pin helps a lot with rolling the dough evenly. It works best with a large rolling pin with rotating handles.
  • Baking times: All ovens are different. Keep a close eye on them if you make them the first time. If a few of them start to puff up a bit, that’s a good sign! They should get slightly golden/brown. If you’re not sure, they should be crispy to the touch.

How to store crackers

storing crackers in air-tight containersIf you let the crackers cool off completely and then store them in air-tight containers, they will stay crispy for days! That way you can also prepare them in advance if you’re having a party coming up!
