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.
