STUFFED PITA WITH MOZZARELLA & ZAATAR

In by Lisa Soldo-JohnsonLeave a Comment

After testing a new recipe for homemade za’atar, this aromatic herb blend is responsible for the magic behind this dish. Stuffed pita with mozzarella and za’atar is one of my new favorite small bites. A quick and easy appetizer perfect for last-minute guest, small or large gatherings, and game night.  Stuffed with melted mozzarella cheese, I coat the soft pita bread with the freshly made za’atar (recipe in my book; It Begins at The Table), bake, roll and halve before serving it warm.  You can make this recipe both gluten-free and dairy-free by using corn tortillas and dairy-free cheese.
