  • For The Bread: Whisk together the yeast, water and sugar. Stir in the oil, the all-purpose flour and most of the bread flour, then the salt. Mix to form a soft dough. Knead the dough for 8 to 10 minutes, till it's elastic and supple, adding additional flour as needed.
  • Place the dough in a large, well-greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and a tea towel, and let rise until doubled. Alternatively, allow the dough a long, cool rise in the refridgerator, several hours or overnight. Bring the dough to room temperature before shaping; it'll rise as it warms up.
  • Divide the dough into 8 pieces. Stretch or roll the pieces into irregular slabs, and let rest for 15 minutes, covered with a tea towel. Spread some lemon/olive oil/za'atar mixture onto each piece of dough.
  • Rub grill with vegetable oil. Preheat the grill to its hottest temperature. Place the flatbreads gently on the grill. Cover and bake for 1 to 2 minutes, then check for doneness. Allow to bake until the tops begin to brown. Brush with additional topping if desired and remove from the grill.
  • For The Za'atar Topping: Mix topping ingredients with a whisk until well blended. Set aside until ready to use.
