 2 naan, about 9-inches each or 1 thin pizza crust, about 11-inches
 2 tsp (10 mL) olive oil
 1½ tsp (7 mL) za'atar spice*

 2 canned California Cling peach halves, cut into thin slices, well drained 2 halves
 and patted dry
 4 pitted black olives, cut in half

 *Za'atar is a blend of dried thyme, oregano, sumac and sesame seeds. Sometime ground cumin and salt is added.
 It can be found at large grocery stores, speciality or Middle Eastern stores.
