Pizza with za’atar and olives

A little pizza filled with the taste of sunshine!


For the dough
1- Mix 10 gr of baker’s yeast with 100 ml warm water and let it stand for 10 minutes.
2- In a large bowl mix: one and half cups of sifted flour (I like to mix whole and white wheat flour), one teaspoon of salt and half a tablespoon of brown sugar.
3- Add half a cup of yogurt and the yeast liquid. Knead until the dough no longer sticks to your fingers (add some flour if need be) and knead some more.
4- Place a wet towel on the bowl, and let the dough rise for at least an hour.

For the pizza
1- Place the dough in an oven baking pan. Just spread the dough in a round (or square) shape with your hands with a little bit of flour. Do not use a roller so that it stays very soft and filled with air. Make some marks with a fork.
2- In a small bowl, mix one tablespoon of olive oil with one generous teaspoon (or two!) of Za’atar (recipe here or you can find it in any Middle Eastern store). Spread the mixture on all the dough even the sides.
3- Place some sliced tomatoes, crushed garlic, Kalamata olives and Parmigiano freshly grated.
4- Bake for 35 minutes in a 190º c oven.
