For all of you people thinking “Crackers?? Is she crazy? Who has time for that?” let me tell you that my sixteen-year-old has taken to making homemade crackers. By himself. With no help from me. And the last time he did, he insisted that his older brother come watch, just so he could show him how easy this gluten free cracker recipe is to make.

(Note that older brother was much more interested in how they tasted than how easy they were to make.)

making gluten free crackers, in process: food processor, rolled dough

Easy gluten free cracker recipe

It took me about 15 minutes to get these ready to go into the oven. I used a food processor to mix the dough. If you don’t have a food processor, here’s what I recommend. Mix the flours and butter together as thoroughly as possible with a pastry blender or wooden spoon, then get your hands in there. Use your hands to really mash the butter into the flour, then add the remaining ingredients, again using your hands to combine the ingredients well. No Italian seasoning on hand? Stir in some dried basil and rosemary.

Roll the dough for this recipe thinly. This makes for crispy gluten free crackers. It’s likely that edges of the rolled dough will be thinner than the center. This is okay, but keep an eye on the crackers as they cook and remove those if they are done before the thicker crackers.

Store these gluten free crackers in an airtight container. And feel free to double the recipe if your food processor bowl is large enough. You’ll be glad you did!

Gluten Free Pizza Cracker Recipe

Gluten Free Pizza Cracker Recipe

Yield: 8 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

These are the best gluten-free crackers, and they're easy to make.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup sorghum flour, (plus more for rolling out dough)
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 10 slices nitrate-free gluten free pepperoni
  • 3-4 T. cold water

Instructions

  1. Combine flours and butter in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse several times, then add cheese, salt, Italian seasoning, and pepperoni. Pulse until crumbly. Add almost all of the water and process just until the ingredients come together, adding remaining water as necessary.
  2. Preheat oven to 350º.
  3. Sprinkle a baking sheet with sorghum flour. Use your hands to form dough into a ball, sprinkle liberally with flour, and then gently roll dough out into a thin sheet (use more flour to prevent sticking if needed). Aim for no more than 1/8-inch thick; too thin is preferable to too thick. 
  4. Use a pizza cutter to cut into one-inch squares. Sprinkle with coarsely ground salt, if desired. pizza cutter cutting gluten free cracker dough
  5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until crackers are lightly browned and crisp. Break the crackers apart and cool. Any that don't feel crisp enough should be popped back in the oven for another five minutes or so. Crackers not eaten immediately (ha!) can be stored in an airtight container.

Notes

If you don't have a food processor, mix the flours and butter together with a pastry blender or wooden spoon, then use your hands to combine the butter into the flour thoroughly. Add the remaining ingredients, again using your hands to combine the ingredients well. 

Keep an eye on the crackers as they cook; remove any that begin to brown before thicker crackers.

    These sound terrific. I need to try it because we buy these kinds of crackers and need to stop!

    • Kris Bordessa Aug 27, 2011, 7:51 am

      They’re SO good and easy!

      • Christine May 11, 2019, 10:23 am

        They look delish! Are they Keto friendly?

        • Kris Bordessa May 11, 2019, 12:22 pm

          I think the sorghum flour would make them NOT Keto, but a clever person might try substituting almond flour…

  • Sheryl Aug 25, 2011, 2:13 pm

    I am SO impressed that you all make homemade crackers. I’d never be so brave… And impressed that your son is into it. He’s learning some good stuff from his mom!

    • Kris Bordessa Aug 27, 2011, 7:51 am

      Sheryl, we really need to work on your bravery in the kitchen! 😉

  • Jeanine Barone Aug 25, 2011, 2:45 pm

    These look like great crackers. (I love pizza-flavored crackers.) Can’t believe you made ’em from scratch. Good going.

  • Vera Marie Badertscher Aug 25, 2011, 4:07 pm

    Well, they look easy, and would have been last week before my husband broke the latch on my food processor by trying to force it to fit together. The Cuisinart is so damnably clever with its locking mechanism. Don’t suppose they supply parts?

    • Kris Bordessa Aug 27, 2011, 7:50 am

      Parts for the processor, or the husband?

    • thecinnamonlady May 23, 2013, 6:58 am

      Yes, I have ordered parts from my Cuisinart online. Just need your model number. Broke that same latch! LOL

  • Living Large Aug 26, 2011, 1:31 am

    Very impressive. They look much better than the icky processed ones from the store, too!

  • ruth pennebaker Aug 26, 2011, 4:19 am

    This is *all* impressive. But the teenage son who makes his own crackers? I’m astonished and humbled.

    • Kris Bordessa Aug 27, 2011, 7:49 am

      He’s a cool kid, Ruth. And one that likes to cook!

  • [email protected] Food. Stories. Aug 26, 2011, 1:34 pm

    Two teenage boys can eat these in ten minutes, you say? I bet one thirtysomething food writer could eat them in seven minutes.

    • Kris Bordessa Aug 27, 2011, 7:49 am

      NO doubt.

  • Jane Boursaw Aug 26, 2011, 5:05 pm

    I remember making crackers ages ago – back in my hippy Laurel’s Cookbook days. 🙂 I love that you’re making them, and that your 16-yo son makes them. That’s awesome. Now I’m wanting to make some, too.

    • Kris Bordessa Aug 27, 2011, 7:49 am

      Jane, I love that you had “hippy Laurel’s Cookbook” days.

  • Allen Aug 27, 2011, 6:50 am

    Very nice! Seems easy, but how do I do it without a food processor? Maybe use a knife and a bowl? and just repeatedly cut through and stir? Some other way? maybe melt the butter and cheese together with a little water, and add that and stir?

    The advice for pizza dough without a stand mixer was spot on and the pizza came out great! So, I’m hoping you’ve some good advice for this one.

    • Kris Bordessa Aug 27, 2011, 7:48 am

      Allen, I would NOT melt the cheese. You’ll end up with a sticky mess. You could use a two knifes or a pastry blender if you have one to cut the butter into the flour until it’s pea sized or smaller (you could TRY melting the butter, but I think I wouldn’t). Cut the pepperoni as small as possible, and work the ingredients together with the knives, and finally a wooden spoon (or your hands). Let us know how it works!

      • Kerry Aug 29, 2011, 3:27 am

        Kris,
        I’ve not tried crackers with these ingredients, but I have made cheese crackers and plain crackers, experimenting with herbs now, without a food processor or blender, just cutting up and mixing by hand. works fine, tastes great. so I encourage Allen and others to give it a go.

        • Allen Aug 29, 2011, 3:39 am

          I think I will try to find a pastry cutter this week, and give this a go. Maybe in two weeks time though, as I am going on vacation next week.

          This weekend I was making pita! Very easy and very tasty, with homemade hummus, which I have yet to perfect.

          Thanks for the advice, and I’ll let you know how the crackers turn out.

          -Allen

  • MyKidsEatSquid Aug 27, 2011, 8:30 am

    I haven’t tried to make homemade crackers either but this looks too good to pass up. You can play with the flavors too, how fun.

  • Melanie @ Frugal Kiwi Aug 28, 2011, 6:28 pm

    I’ve made simple crackers before, but nothing with cool flavors!

  • Jennifer Margulis Aug 29, 2011, 6:31 am

    Awesome recipe. Looking forward to trying it!

  • Alisa Bowman Aug 30, 2011, 1:56 pm

    Those look awesome. I’m embarrassed to admit that I read this while eating cheese doodles. We all have our very guilty pleasure, I suppose.

  • Donna Hull Sep 5, 2011, 3:50 am

    These look yummy and not so hard to make. Will give this a try. I love crackers.

  • Kerri Jun 28, 2012, 4:52 pm

    I am wondering if anyone has tried to make these or the cheese crackers with dairy free cheese…I am gluten and dairy free…

    • KrisBordessa Jun 28, 2012, 7:33 pm

      Kerri, I don’t know, but I put it out to the Facebook community. If anyone responds, I’ll let you know! 

  • Michelle Feb 1, 2014, 3:39 am

    Can they be made without the cheese?

  • Michelle Mar 24, 2018, 10:10 pm

    These make a yummy snack and were easy to make. Will make again!
