The basic dough in this recipe gets an extra kick of flavor with the addition of yogurt, which adds a nice rich tartness. This simple dough is then topped with za'atar, which is a Middle Eastern blend of herbs, sesame seeds, and salt. These two simple components make for a bold and delicious pizza. This is great eaten on its own, but also makes a great base to enjoy with dip.


  • 50 milliliters warm water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 240 grams yogurt
  • 310 grams wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon yeast (dehydrated)
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons za'atar
  • 1 tablespoon spice (ground sumac)
  • 80 milliliters olive oil


  1. If you have a bread machine, first put water, oil, salt and yogurt, then the remaining ingredients and run the "dough cycle" program.
  2. If you do not have a bread machine, mix the flour and salt in a large bowl.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the yogurt and the oil and in another bowl, the water, the yeast and the sugar.
  4. Make a well in the center of the flour pour the water-based mixture and then the yogurt mixture.
  5. Mix all the ingredients with your fingertips, then knead for 10 minutes. The dough should be soft and smooth.
  6. Cover the dough and let it rise for at least two hours.
  7. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  8. Mix together all the ingredients of the filling.
  9. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  10. Divide the dough into several small balls, the size of an apricot.
  11. Flatten each ball by hand, giving it a shape of a small pizza.
  12. Arrange them on the baking sheet.
  13. With a spoon, spread a little of the mixture for topping on each pizza. Put them in the oven for 5-10 minutes.
  14. The dough should not be too brown and must remain moist.

These smelled so good cooking and tasted great. I try to get my za'atar from the market rather than a large grocery as it always tastes fresher and more authentic.
