Flatbread topping recipe Berbere with manchego and Za’atar.  Two different tastes so there is something for everyone.  So delicious it might become your go to recipe for pizza night.  Berbere is a Ethiopian spice that is also delicious on chicken.  Berbere can range from very spicy to mild so be aware if it is very spicy you may want to add less.  Manchego is a mild tasting Spanish sheep’s cheese.  It has a nice tangy flavor to goes great with berbere.

Za’atar a spice that is popular throughout the Middle East.  Za’atar is very versatile and can also be used on chicken and as a dipping oil when mixed with olive oil for artisan breads.  Throughout the Middle East Za’atar is used on flatbread.  In Lebanon it is called man’oushe.  It has a mild herby flavor and it not spicy at all.

The steps are so easy if you already have the dough. You can have it ready in less than fifteen minutes start to finish.  If you would like to make your own dough you can search for flatbread in the search bar. You can also find the recipe here.  Trust me it is worth the effort.  Like I stated earlier the recipe is simple you just mix the spices with olive oil and brush it over your dough.  The fresher the spices the better because they can lose their flavor and aroma over time.  You can add more spice if the spices are not as fresh or if you like your flatbread spicier.  Grate your cheese for the berbere version I would recommend manchego or similar.  Sprinkle the cheese on evenly and bake for about 8 minutes till the cheese is nicely melted and the flatbread it cooked.
