With school starting next week, my mind has gone straight to school lunch mode. What snacks to pack for my kids? Store bought may be easy, but sometimes it’s worth the time to make snacks from scratch. I like to know every ingredient too. These homemade gluten free pizza crackers are made with my gluten free flour blend, almond flour and Bob’s Red Mill golden flaxseed meal. A good start to a healthy gluten free cracker.

This golden flaxseed meal from Bob’s Red Mill is such a versatile ingredient. It can be added to breads, muffins, crackers, pancakes, smoothies and even cookies too. Full of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber, it adds a nutritious nuttiness to so many recipes. I’ve been a fan of flaxseed meal for years and I love the golden version, as it’s easier to hide from my kids. They never know when I’m sneaking in the good stuff.

Gluten Free Vegan Pizza Crackers. Featuring Bob's Red Mill golden flaxseed meal, these baked crackers taste just like a slice of pizza!

Homemade crackers aren’t as difficult as you would think. Once the dough is mixed together, you just place it on a parchment lined cookie sheet, cover with another piece of parchment and roll it out. Slice with a pizza cutter, sprinkle on a little salt and bake in the oven. Just a couple steps to crispy, gluten free crackers. You get to the choose the flavors too!

My kids were HUGE fans of these gluten free vegan pizza crackers. They could smell them in the oven baking and knew something good was coming. Without telling my husband, I asked him to try one and tell me the flavor. Without hesitation, he said, “pizza.” Winner, winner! The savory flavors of pizza all wrapped up in these little crispy crackers.
