Recipe Card

For the 10-Minute Dough


  • 5 cups all purpose flour, divided
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons yeast
  • 1/2 cup oil

For the Fillings


  • 3 tablespoons Za'atar
  • 1 cup Kashkaval Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Pearls Black Olives,
  • 1 cup feta cheese

For the 10 Minute Dough


  • Step 1

    Mix 2 cups of flour, the warm water, sugar and yeast. Cover for 10 minutes. Add the oil, the rest of flour and salt, knead the dough and add more flour/water as needed. It is preferable if you let it rest for extra 5-10 minutes but that's optional.

  • Step 2

    Start rolling 1/3 of your dough into a rectangle and cut the extra parts. Place your favorite stuffing, roll it and cut it using a floss or knife. Place in an oven-safe pan and bake at 370Β°F/190Β°C for 20-25 minutes or until it is slightly brown on top. Brush with a mixture of warm butter and rosemary.
