In a medium bowl, add the warm water and mix with yeast and sugar. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 minutes to activate.  You will see a foam form on the surface of the water.

Add in the flour and begin to mix using hands or a spoon. It will be sticky.  Once slightly mixed, begin to slowly add the olive oil, a little at a time as you are kneading the dough.

Once your dough has formed, form it into a ball, cover it directly with oiled suran wrap, then cover it with a kitchen towel.  Set it aside and allow it to rest for at least 30 minutes.

Form a 3-4 inch ball of dough, then place on a clean floured surface. Flatten using a rolling pin for flatter bread (or with the tip of your fingers press down on dough to form a round circular shape).

Place skillet on high heat. After a few minutes lower to low heat. Place the dough on the skillet for about 2 minutes on each side.

Enjoy the flat bread as is or with your favorite spread.

If you want to make this flat bread with zaatar, mix 3 tablespoon of za'atar with 3 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Brush this mixture on the Manakeesh the first thing after you roll them.
