Man'ooshé.....Mood = MiddleEast Pizza
I read a blog called Taste of Beirut, and Joumana, the author of this blog simply has the most wonderful, honest fresh, lebanese cuisine on there, and this is where i got my manooshé recipe from and let me just say that i am now one of the happiest women alive! This is such a treat for me as i now dont have to go to beirut for the authemtic mini pizza. I know we have plenty of middle eastern shops around but it just not the same. Making your own is simply something else!!!!
I used Taleggio cheese for this as I didnt have anything else and it worked a treat. I called my mum to ask her if it was ok and she said yes ofcourse, as in Beirut they use all kinds of mixes to make this.
So you can find the recipe for the base here.
My mix is dried thyme and sumac blizted together then add some sesame seeds and olive oil. Sprinkle with a little salt and cover the dough.
Check out Joumanas other recipes as im sure they will become a part of your dinig rituals....
