Homemade Matzo for Passover | #SundaySupper

Homemade matzo is very simple to make. I make this each year for our Passover dinner.



To begin, preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

You’ll need 4 kinds of flour. A half cup of whole wheat flour – I whipped out my to grind some fresh.


You’ll also need a half cup each of spelt flour and oat flour and a full cup of all-purpose flour. Combine these in a food processor, and give them a pulse to mix them.


With the processor going, drizzle in a cup of cold water. When it comes together into a soft dough, turn it out onto a floured surface.


Form the dough into a ball and cut it in half.


Cut each half into 6 equally sized portions.


Roll each portion into a ball.


Take a ball and roll it out very thin, and then poke it all over with a fork.



Bake these on a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper or a silpat. You’ll need to do these in batches, as they will not all fit on your cookie sheet.


Bake them for 12 minutes, turning the pans around half way through. When they are done baking, cool them completely on a rack.


Repeat with the remaining dough balls.

    That's the first time I hear about matzo, I swear! So glad I discovered it on your space and your step by step pictures should help me making my own. maybe I might be able to surprise some Israeli friends with your recipe. ^.^

      Helene, matzo is what we eat for Passover because when the Jews were fleeing from Egypt, they had no time to bake their bread, so they took the bread, put it on their backs and the sun literally baked it.

    Really great instructions and photos. I didn't realize what was involved in making Matzo… inspired to try it! ;-)

    Matzo is so good and I – like everyone above me – had no idea that it is so easy to make. It looks fantastic. Thank you for sharing. Have a great holiday, Conni.
