Za'atar pizza is a type of pizza that features za'atar as a key ingredient. Za'atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend that typically includes dried thyme, sumac, sesame seeds, and salt. It has a unique and savory flavor profile that adds depth to various dishes. Here's a basic recipe for making a Za'atar Pizza:


For the Dough:

  • Pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)

For the Za'atar Topping:

  • Za'atar spice blend
  • Olive oil

Optional Toppings:

  • Feta cheese, crumbled
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Red onions, thinly sliced
  • Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced

For Garnish:

  • Fresh mint or parsley, chopped


Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven according to the instructions for your pizza dough.

Roll Out the Dough:

  • Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface to your desired thickness.

Prepare the Za'atar Topping:

  • In a small bowl, mix the za'atar spice blend with enough olive oil to create a spreadable consistency.

Spread Za'atar on the Dough:

  • Place the rolled-out pizza dough on a baking sheet or pizza stone. Spread the za'atar mixture evenly over the surface of the dough, leaving a border around the edges for the crust.

Add Optional Toppings:

  • If desired, add additional toppings such as crumbled feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, red onions, and sliced Kalamata olives.

Bake in the Oven:

  • Follow the baking instructions for your pizza dough. Bake the za'atar pizza in the preheated oven until the crust is golden and the toppings are cooked.

Garnish and Serve:

  • Once out of the oven, garnish the za'atar pizza with fresh mint or parsley for a burst of freshness.

Slice and Enjoy:

  • Slice the pizza and serve it while warm. Za'atar pizza is often enjoyed as is or with a drizzle of extra olive oil.
