Pane Carasau is a crisp bread made only from durum wheat semolina, water and natural yeast. Nothing more. Sardinian shepherds´ wives have always been in charge of kneading the dough, shaping it into thin, round discs. As the dough starts to rise it is baked once, then each disc is split in two halves which are re-baked separately. This re-baking procedure is called "carasare" - whence the word "carasau" - and it ensures Pane Carasau the longest durability of all types of bread.
