Sourdough Focaccia Crackers

Inspired by the Italian bread, my sourdough focaccia crackers are packed with the flavors of olive oil, thyme, and tangy sourdough.

Author: Corey Grimsley


  • 12 x 16" parchment paper
  • (2) half sheet pans


  • 454 grams sourdough discard
  • 226 grams AP flour
  • 95 grams olive oil divided
  • 12 grams fresh thyme
  • 10 grams salt Mortons Coarse Kosher
  • 5 grams flaky finishing salt Maldon


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF
  • Combine the sourdough discard, flour, 70 grams of olive oil, fresh thyme, and Kosher salt in a stand mixer with the hook attachment. Mix on low to form a smooth dough, about 6 minutes.
  • Divide in two.
  • Place a 12 x 16" piece of parchment paper on a work surface. Gently stretch out one half of the dough and place on the parchment paper. Working from the center, press the dough out to the edges.
  • Once the dough is to the shape of the parchment paper, dimple the surface with your fingertips.
  • Coat the surface with the reserved 25 grams of olive oil. Sprinkle the top with flaky salt.
  • Cut the dough into 1 1/2 x 4" rectangles. I use a 6 wheel pastry cutter to get perfectly spaces cuts.
  • Transfer the parchment paper to a sheet tray and bake for 40-45 minutes, rotating the trays halfway through baking. The crackers are done when the edges are just beginning to turn golden.
  • Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool. Enjoy or store in an air tight container.
