Not being able to find Matzo meal down here (although I didn't check EVERY grocery store), I tested out the recipe he provided me with using 2 ingredients. Water and flour. And what do you know, I had those on hand.
If you've never had matzoh before, don't get too excited. It's an unsalted cracker, but with less flavor. It's not something a person usually craves, but sometimes it needs to be eaten. I prefer mine slathered with cream cheese and topped with fruit, jelly, or something similar.
Anyway, I threw together the water and flour, and rolled it out to about 1/8 of an inch thick. It was a bit on the thick side, but ended up coming out similar to a pita pocket. I poked holes in them and baked them on a preheated pizza stone at 500 degrees, probably around 5-6 minutes until golden brown and crunchy.
It wasn't too bad, I used them as 'chips' to dip in some salsa that was kicking around. Next time I would probably add a little salt to the recipe and roll them out thinner. These would probably be good with hummus or other thick spread/dip.
