Mix the flour, yeast, and salt until combined. In a Food Mixer fixed with a dough hook, add water, olive oil, and dry ingredients. Mix the dough for 4-6 minutes until it likens elastic and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. You can do this by hand if you don’t have a mixer. Cover the bowl with cling film, and store in a warm place until the dough doubles in size.

Mix the za’atar and olive oil in a small bowl with a pastry brush, set aside.
Portion the dough into 8 and form small balls, press them out with your hands and use a rolling pin to form a round thin shape.
Crumble feta cheese in the centre of the dough and sprinkle a little Za’ater in as well. Drizzle a line of olive oil around the edge and then folder in all the edges to the middle to seal. Flatten with the palm of your hand.

Place a large pan on a medium heat and add 1 tbsp olive oil Place the flatbreads in the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes each side. Do not let them burn. Using a brush, cover the flat side with the za’atar and oil mix you made earlier. Once cooked leave to rest for 5 minutes before serving with a salad or as an accompaniment to a BBQ.
