Before I get started though, I have to tell a funny story about my 6 year old. The other day he had some peanut butter sandwich crackers that someone had given him. He was eating them in the car and clearly thinking about something. He finally piped up with, "I know how to make these crackers." I think to myself, "Sure, take two crackers and stick them together with peanut butter." Thankfully I kept my mouth shut because his idea was even better. "First you make the crackers. Then you make the peanut butter. Then you spread your peanut butter on one side of a cracker and stick the other cracker to it." I had a proud moment when I realized my 6 year old thinks crackers and peanut butter come from my kitchen, not just containers at the store.
And on to the recipe . . .
GF Vegan Pizza Crackers
Yields: crackers / Time: 10 active minutes, 15 minutes bake time

- 1/4 cup Tomato Juice
- 2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
- 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 Tbsp Flax Meal
- 1 cup GF Oat Flour (you can grind your own by putting GF oats in a blender and blending until floury)
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 3 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
- 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
- 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Mix first 4 ingredients in a measuring cup or small bowl.
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
Press out on a piece of parchment.
Cover with another piece and roll to 1/4 inch thick. (I use the foil backed parchment, just personal choice)
Remove top parchment paper and lightly tap in the edges so they aren't significantly thinner than the rest of the dough.
Score into cracker sizes with a pizza cutter. Transfer bottom parchment paper and cracker dough to a baking sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes.
Remove from oven and either flip the crackers individually or turn the whole parchment paper with crackers over and release the crackers upside down on the baking sheet and separate them.
Discard the parchment and bake the crackers for another 9-10 minutes, until the edges just start to brown.
Cool on a cooling rack and enjoy.
Have you ever made crackers? I have several go-to recipes that we really enjoy. I love knowing what goes into my kids' snacks and they get pretty excited when I offer to make them.
