Pesto Crackers (Low Carb)

This low carb cracker is perfect with some cheese and crackers, or spreading on your favorite dip. The key to the crispiness of these savory crackers is to use a baking stone.

Once the dough is mixed together, shape into a disc, wrap in plastic and chill for 30 minutes.

After rolling out the dough between two pieces of parchment, cut into squares using a pizza cutter. Take care not to thin out the edges too much – as they will burn faster (like in picture).

Slide the parchment (don’t need to separate crackers) on top of a preheated baking stone (or baking sheet) and put in oven. Once they are cooled, they will easily snap apart.

I wish I discovered Rolling Pin Bands long ago. But as you can tell from the pictures above it wasn’t until after I made this recipe – which is why all the edge pieces of these crackers are burnt! For less than $10, these bands (3/8″, 1/4″, 1/8″, & 1/16″) ensure every inch of your dough will not be wasted by your heavy-handed rolling pin technique 🙂

  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 egg white
  • ½ cup pesto

  3. Stir until well mixed, using hands if necessary. Shape into disc, wrap in plastic and chill for 30 minutes.
  4. Roll out between two pieces of parchment paper and roll out to ¼" thick (about 8"x12" rectangle).
  5. Use a pizza cutter to cut dough into 2" size crackers. Don't separate, just slide parchment onto the preheated baking stone and bake at 400°F for 12-15 minutes. Once cool, they will easily snap apart.
Notes
As you are rolling the dough out, try and keep the edges the same width. If they are thinner, they will can burn.
