I wanted to remind you about one of my all time favorite fun “dishes”. Years ago we fell in love with a restaurant called Brio, an Italian restaurant. Before your meal they give you a little dish of breads, and these wonderful, crispy, hard breads are featured. I was determined to go home and make a similar product, so I went on instinct and started with raw pizza crust. We rolled it into a big circle, (actually hubby did it cause he could roll it so much thinner than I could). But during my “development days” I even rolled it in my pasta machine! That made it very thin, but it was difficult to cut into nice triangles because of the shape of the dough.

changing the size of the finished product depends on your rolling out!


1 store bought pizza crust (or make your own)

Cut in half, roll into a round ball, and roll out as thinly as possible

Add toppings of your choice, but always brush with olive or other oils first, to make the toppings stick

My toppings:

  • olive oil
  • sprinkling of Ranch dressing (the powder)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • whole flax seeds

other toppings could be ground pepper, sesame seeds (unless your hubby is allergic, like mine!). Or try making a sweet treat with cinnamon sugar.

Bake at 325 about 18 minutes. This is another place you might have to adjust timing. So pay attention!

REMEMBER: The size of the finished product depends on how large the first roll is. You could make tiny or large. Try it a few different ways. You’ll get it!!

These crackers literally last for weeks with no refrigeration. They are crackers, after all!

NOTE: My granddaughter is getting married and the reception is at her house. These will be on all the tables with the centerpieces. My contribution to a long and happy life!!
