  • 1/2 Teaspoon fine grain sea salt

If the dough is too dry add some water.

Wrap dough in plastic wrap, and put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Before beginning to roll out the dough, let it sit out of the fridge for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and line baking sheet with tinfoil.

Parmesan Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Parmesan Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
