  • Step 1

    Dissolve the yeast in the milk and let it sit for 5 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Knock back the dough and divide into two then roll out each piece thinly with an oiled rolling pin on an oiled surface.

    Place the dough on a hot griddle for 2-3 minutes to cook the underside.

  • Step 7

    Transfer onto the Pyrex glass baking tray to cook the top for 2 minutes.

    Remove and dress generously, while still hot, with zaatar and olive oil to taste.
