This is a play on the popular fathead dough. I omit the egg from the original recipe. I find that it helps make the crackers crispier. This is how I make the crackers. You can adjust the spices to more or less depending on your taste. I like a spicy cracker! These are great for dipping, or eating with pepperoni and cheese. I even spread cream cheese on them when I need to get some more fats in.

The key to making this dough is to mix the spices, flour and shredded cheese with a fork BEFORE microwaving it. I find that it helps to get everything mixed really well.
