Default Classic flat bread or cracker bread recipe

I have been looking for a classic recipe for cracker bread. I have looked everywhere. I usually get a flat bread which rises to about 1/2" thick. I want crunchy wafer thin craker bread. Thanks!

There is a great one in Peter Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice. If you don't have it, we can list the recipe here.

I do Reinhart's lavash recipe regularly. And his book Bread Baker's Apprentice is highly recommended. But if you Google flatbread you can find other good recipes such as this one.

Semolina-Sesame Flatbread Crackers Recipe | Wild Yeast

Good luck! Crackers and flatbread are fun!

There's also a good one in Baking With Julia. It's always a hit at parties when we make them.

Try Peter Reinhart's recipe for peppery cracker bread in Crust & Crumb, page 136 ff.

Makes lovely strips of crackers - and the dough can also be used for pizza!

Cheers,

Sounds as if you want Carta di Musica: Literally "sheet music". This cracker/bread is supposed to be so thin you can read through it! Delicious and crunchy; if you add some seeds to the dough, it does actually look like old parchment paper music sheets! The King Arthur Flour Bread Book has an excellent recipe that I have made many times...
