My thoughts

My favorite toppings are smoked paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Other good toppings include, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, herbs (rosemary), and coarsely ground black pepper. I tried cooking one big sheet of this stuff and it didn’t cook evenly, probably the downside to using a pizza stone a sheet pan w/ some parchment might have been a better choice for that experiment. I’d still like to try rolling out a big sheet of the dough and then cutting squares with a pizza cutter to make more traditional crackers or even matzo.
