Calories Per Serving


  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 Cups (plus more as needed) warm water
  • Oil for brushing
  • Salt and seasonings, as desired


Step 1: Preheat oven to 500 F. Place an inverted baking tray on the center rack.

Step 2: In a large bowl, mix together 4 1/2 cups flour and 3/4 cup water until a smooth dough forms. Add water by the tablespoon if the dough is too dry.

Step 3: Break off pieces of dough and roll out until very thin. Poke all over with a fork. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with desired seasoning.

Step 4: Carefully place dough on top of the preheated baking sheet. Bake for 2 1/2 minutes. Using tongs, flip matzo and bake for another 2 minutes. Remove from oven and repeat with remaining dough. Enjoy!
