Made with olive oil and the toppings of your choice—fleur de sel, sesame, poppy or fennel seeds—these crackers are as pleasant to make as they are to receive. After rolling out the dough thinly on your work surface, simply cut into strips (as narrow as a piece of dry fettuccine, or as wide as a cheese stick) with a pizza cutter.
