Today I have made Za’atar Bread Two ways using a Two Ingredient Dough

My kids love this and this deliciously comforting bread makes an entry as a side at least once a week.Ideal for quick brunch board or late night snack board setups because we love to catch up on some Turkish Drama while having to eat something that doesn’t take too much of my time….

Check out my IGTV on my instagram page : Link is attached below

Let’s Get Started

You Will Need

  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • Finch Za’atar Mix
  • Olive Oil
  • Grated Cheese(Optional)

The Dough

Mix the two ingredients : All Purpose Flour and Greek Yogurt to make a manageable dough

Let this rest for at least 30 minutes.In the meantime you can prep the filling

The Filling

Mix Za’atar Mix with some extra virgin olive oil to make a thick paste.Make sure its not too runny.Cheese is optional but we do cheese on almost everything in this house…I mean everything tastes better with cheese yah?

Let’s Get Rolling

This particular one is a quick and easy dough recipe but you could definitely use a traditional pizza dough to make this kind of bread because the texture would be much more soft.

My recipe is available in my blog site.Link is attached below :

Like I mentioned before I have made two ways.One in the form of pinwheels and the other in the form of a flatbread.

Za’atar Pinwheels

Step One : Roll out dough over a flat surface using more flour if needed.This dough can be abit stickier compared to regular pizza dough.

Step Two : Apply enough spoonfuls of za’atar mix over this layer of flattened dough leaving some space on the edges to make rolling easier

Step Three : Sprinkle Cheese

Step Four : Start rolling away from you to form a log shape

Step Five : Use a sharp knife and start cutting into this log forming individual pinwheels

I used a serrated knife

Bake in a preheated oven for at least 20-30 minutes or until its beautifully golden on the outside

Za’atar Flatbread

Step One : Roll out dough balls into small oval disc shapes

Step Two : Apply Za’atar and olive oil mixture


Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes or until they’re nice and golden

Serve warm…We enjoyed this for Iftar many times
