Ingredients

For the crackers: 

1/2 cup grated asiago cheese (about 2 ounces)

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 pound prepared pizza dough, at room temperature

All-purpose flour, for dusting

1 large egg

For the dip:

1 head elephant garlic

1/2 cup grated asiago cheese (about 2 ounces)

Kosher salt

5 to 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Make the crackers: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the asiago and cayenne in a small bowl. Dust the pizza dough lightly with flour, then run it through a pasta roller, adjusting the setting thinner each time and dusting with more flour as needed, until about 1/8 inch thick. 
  2. Lightly beat the egg and 1 tablespoon water in a bowl. Brush the dough with the egg wash and sprinkle liberally with the asiago-cayenne mixture. Using a pizza wheel, cut the dough crosswise into triangles. Place the dough triangles on a baking sheet and bake until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet. 
  3. Meanwhile, make the dip: Place the garlic in a small baking dish and roast in the oven until very soft when squeezed, about 40 minutes; let cool 10 minutes. Cut the top off the garlic and squeeze the roasted cloves out of the skin. 
  4. Place the roasted garlic in a food processor, add the asiago and season with salt. With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil. Drizzle in up to 1/4 cup water if the dip is too thick. Taste and make sure it is delicious; re-season if needed. Serve with the crackers.
