Zaatar Bread

Edited to Add!

Zaatar, at least the kind we eat, is a mix of the spices thyme, oregano, and marjoram with teeny toasted sesame seeds and salt.

I will send a little sample to try to the first 5 people who email me their mailing addresses! (rhodeygirltests at gmail dot com)

Also, one of our favorite ways to eat it growing up was by dipping a piece of pita bread first into olive oil and then into zaatar. MMMMMmmmmm!


Maybe the easiest, crowd-pleasing thing to make for a party.



Roll out a pizza dough. Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with zaatar (a mix of spices, including thyme mmMMMm). Bake at the highest temperature your oven will allow, until the crust and bottom are a nice golden brown. Enjoy!

  18. Do Mediterranean restaurants sometimes serve this bread? I ate last night at a restaurant I believe was Turkish (the name of the place was Good Frickin Chicken so that doesn’t help – ha ha). Anyway, they served what they called their “special pita bread” and it was covered in a spice similar to what this appears to be. It was so good…probably had a crapload of butter or oil on it, and maybe garlic as well. Worth every bite!

  19. Totallllly making this for super bowl. You rock 🙂
