The dive focuses on sphihas, those Middle Eastern flatbreads topped with ingredients that look like a Levantine pizza but are eminently more affordable and delicious. Take a hint from their name and start with a zaatar sphiha, the desiccated herb rub that finds oregano, sesame seeds, olive oil and other dried herbs fighting for supremacy over your palate and reaching a tart truce-here, the zaatar extends from one end of the large, fat flatbread it tops to the other.
