Preheat your oven to 550F. Note1
In your mixer bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients and mix well with a fork.
Add the oil and start mixing, gradually add water until you reach a consistent soft dough, keep kneading for at least 10 minutes.
lightly oil the bowl and the dough, cover with plastic wrap and let it rest until doubled in size, will take around an hour depending on your kitchen temperature.
Take the dough out, cut into 4 equal parts, shape each part into a ball, cover and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Roll each ball into a circle no more than 1/4 inch thickness, cover and let it set until you finish the rest of the balls.
On your cooling rack, carefully flip the pitas on the other side so the face that was on the counter is now facing up. Note2
Brush with egg and sprinkle some sesame seeds or Za’atar in top.
Open the oven door carefully trying to put your face away from the heat of the oven, bring the middle rack of your oven out a little and place the cooling rack with the pita on it. Push the oven rack in and close the oven door.
Bake for about 2-3 minutes until it puffs nicely and the top is little browned. Note3
Take it out of the oven and with a spatula take the pita off the cooling rack and let it cool completely.
Give your oven 2-3 minutes to get back to the high temperature before placing the next pita in.
When the pitas are completely cooled, store n a zip lock bag.
