Ingredients

  • 3 cups warm water

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package yeast

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

  • 8 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour, or more if needed

  • 2 cups olive oil

  • 1 cup corn oil

  • 2 cups fresh za'atar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Mix water, yeast, salt, and sugar together in a large bowl. Add all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, olive oil, and corn oil; mix using your hands, adding more whole wheat flour if needed, until dough holds together. Mix za'atar into dough until evenly incorporated (see notes).

  3. Shape dough, about 1/4 cup per piece, into rounds on a floured work surface. Arrange rounds on baking sheets.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You may substitute fresh oregano for the fresh za'atar, but use less.

Editor's Note:

If you use the dried spice blend or dried oregano, start with 2 tablespoons; adjust to taste.
