  7. Brush the dough with Olive Oil (or your chosen fat) and sprinkle with extra seeds if desired. And cut with a pizza wheel into desired cracker shape, keeping as uniform as possible and prick well with fork.

  8. Bake for 12-16 minutes or until golden brown in color. If the outside crackers cook faster, just remove the pan from the oven, move the cooked crackers to a rack to cool and put the unfinished crackers back in the oven to complete baking. Transfer crackers to cooling rack. Crackers will crisp as they cool. Serve crackers immediately or store in an airtight container on the counter for up to a week.
