Servings 4 people


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Preheat the oven to 450.
  • First, in a bowl add flour and salt. Mix to combine.
  • Next, make a well in the middle of the flour and pour the oil and water. Slowly mix incorporating the oil/water into the flour until forms a loose ball.
  • Next, add a teaspoon of oil to the counter (so the dough does not stick) and kneed the dough with your hand 3-4 times to make ball smooth.
  • Now, smash the dough flat with your hand and roll out the dough as thin as you can. Then using pizza cutter or knife create a large square. Now, cut the big square into 4 squares.
  • Now, place each square on a sheet pan lined with parchment. Poke lots of wholes in the dough with a fork for the signature matzo look but also helps it from rising.
  • Finally, place on the top rack of the oven 4 minutes per side and enjoy!
