This is really tasty!!! I made my own Middle Eastern version of Za'atar with thyme, marjoram, toasted white and black sesame seeds, ground sumac, and I sprinkled a little ground Turkish aleppo pepper on for some heat. I rubbed a garlic clove over the bread then spread EVOO over and sprinkled the spices on top and spread them in. I cut into triangle shapes beforeI baked them at 320 F for 10 minutes. It was great with my salad, gave a wonderful and unique spicy bite!! These would be so pretty to serve guests with maybe a hummus or baba ganoush too!! Thanks for the recipe, Ninna!

I've been making this for years because I'm from Israel, and suddenly found your recipe here. Thanks for posting and teaching the community about "pita eem za'atar". I recommend mixing the zaatar with the oil before spreading it on the pita - and place a generous amount too. Authentic!
