step-by-step
instructions
1 Toast the pitas

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Place the pitas on a sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Turn to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Toast 7 to 9 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly crispy. Transfer to a cutting board.

2 Prepare the ingredients

Meanwhile, peel and thinly slice the shallot. Cut the peppers crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the za’atar and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

3 Cook the vegetables & serve your dish

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced shallot and pepper pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned; season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Turn off the heat. Evenly top the toasted pitas topped with the tzatziki, cooked vegetables, and za’atar oil. Cut each finished pita into 4 equal-sized wedges. Enjoy!
