Instructions

  1. To make the dough: Mix and knead together all of the dough ingredients, by hand, mixer or bread machine, till you've created a smooth, soft dough.

  2. Allow the dough to rise, covered, for 1 hour; then shape and bake as directed below. Or refrigerate dough for up to 2 days; this step will develop the crust's flavor.

  3. Divide the dough in half (or in thirds, for cracker-thin crust).

  4. Shape each piece into a 10" to 14" circle or rectangle (thicker or thinner crust), and place each on a piece of parchment paper or greased pan.

  5. Allow to rise for 30 minutes or so, covered, while preheating the oven to 475°F.

  6. To make cracker bread: Brush the dough with garlic oil and sprinkle with assorted seeds. Or top any way you choose. Bake for 12 minutes, till brown and crisp. For the crispiest pizza, bake the crust for 8 minutes, until set, before topping with sauce and cheese; then bake for an additional 4 minutes.
