Vegetarian Manakish - Arabic Pizza

This pizza is a popular arabic luncheon food consisting of dough topped with thyme, cheese, or ground meat. Similar to a pizza, it can be sliced or folded. The word manakish is from the root verb naqasha 'to sculpt, carve out', as the dough is rolled flat and then pressed in by the fingertips to create little dimples for all of the toppings to sit in.

These are made with Olive Oil, Za'atar (Oregano, Thyme. Basil, Cumin, Sesame Seeds, and Salt), Asiago Fresca cheese, homemade Salsa, slivered Chocolate Sweet Pepper, and diced Peaches.

Truly the easiest way to stretch out personal sized pizzas, 
use gravity to stretch the dough over two tall glasses.


Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes.
