For our easy homemade crackers recipe, we turned pita bread, lavash, tortillas, and even thin-cut bagels into crisp crackers by brushing them with oil and baking. A light brushing of olive oil was all that was necessary—too much and the crackers were oil-soaked and burnt around the edges. A moderate oven crisped the bread evenly without any excessive browning. Even at a moderate temperature, we found we got the best results when we flipped the crackers midway through.

These crackers are made from ingredients that may already be lurking in your kitchen. Spare pita bread, lavash, tortillas, and even day-old bagels can be transformed into crackers that would put the most renowned cracker manufacturer to shame. Although these addictively crunchy snacks are ripe for dipping, they can also be jazzed up with a range of herb and spice variations (see related recipes).
