You might love crunchy, cheesy crackers to snack on or to top with a smear of liver pate. But, what if you are gluten-free and can’t just reach for a box of those classic cheese bites that you just pop a handful of into your mouth?

It is possible to still enjoy cheese crackers when gluten is off the menu. We have a really easy recipe for gluten-free cheese crackers that are made using a pre-made pie crust, such as Silly Zak’s that you can purchase frozen. You won’t believe how simple and tasty this recipe is. Adults and kids will enjoy these.

Homemade Gluten-Free Cheese Crackers Recipe

Homemade Cheese CrackersThis recipe requires a large surface area, such as a clean countertop for rolling out the dough. The other equipment you will need is a rolling pin, a sheet pan, parchment paper, and a pastry brush. And of course, you need an oven.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 6 minutes
Serves: 4 people


  • 1 pre-made and uncooked gluten-free pie crust
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (optional)
  • Neutral tasting gluten-free flour for rolling out the dough


  1. Remove the pie crust from the freezer and allow it to rest for approximately 30 minutes to thaw out and soften.
  2. Preheat your oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Brush the parchment paper with 1 tablespoon of the EVOO.
  3. Dust your countertop with a mild-tasting gluten-free flour, such as brown rice flour or millet flour. Place the pie crust on the counter. Dust the pie crust with a little more flour. Roll out the pie crust to 1/8 inch thickness. Brush EVOO on the pie crust and sprinkle the pepper over the crust. Add the cheese all over the crust.
  4. Cut the pie crust into 1-1/2 inch squares. Place these on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Put the pan with the crackers into the oven and cook for 6 minutes until the crackers start to puff up and are golden brown.
  6. Serve just the way they are or with a soft and spreadable pate.

Homemade cheese crackers are super and easy when using a pre-made pie crust. For gluten-free crackers, we recommend Silly Zak’s gluten-free pie shell for this recipe. Just remember to thaw it out before rolling it. Check out Silly Zak’s website for gluten-free products.
