Remove pre-made pizza dough from packaging and kneed for about 2 minutes. Separate it into four equally-sized balls of dough.

Pre-heat Heat to 400 degrees. If you can, convection baking is best for pizza, and if you’re using a convection oven you can preheat to 425.

Let’s roll! Lightly flour your work surface and a wooden rolling pin. Place a ball of dough on the floury workplace and press it down with the palm of your hand. Once it’s nice, round, and flat, use your rolling pin to finish the job. Roll your dough from the center of the circle to the edge, then rotate it and do it again. Repeat this until the dough is round and ¼ -inch thick.

Once your dough is flat, carefully transfer it to whatever flat surface you’ll be using to transfer the pizza to the oven.

It’s topping time! Brush the entire surface of your dough with olive oil, then sprinkle za’atar liberally over the top. Then, add your tomato and mozzarella slices and even more tasty za’atar.

Once your pizza is topped, slide it onto the baking stone. Let it bake for 5-7 minutes, or until the bottom of the crust is golden and the top is bubbly and golden.

Do this three more times for the rest of your dough and then you get to eat your pizzatar!
