Manoush – Lebanese Pizza

A popular Lebanese breakfast bread, Manoush can be made with a variety of toppings. I make mine with either crumbled white cheese and eat with honey, or Za’atar spice mix. (Za’atar recipe is here).

for 8 pieces you will need

3 Cups 00 Grade Flour

1 1/2 tbsp quick Yeast

1 tbsp Sugar

2 tsp Salt

1/2  Cup Water

1/2 Cup Milk

1tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Pre heat Oven

Place flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add in water, milk and olive oil all the while stirring with fingers (assume firm claw position!). Mix until you have a dough then turn onto a floured surface and knead. If mixture is a little sticky, add more flour, if dry add more drops of water.

Knead for a good 10 minutes, until dough becomes soft and elastic. Place back into bowl, and cover. Leave to rise for an hour in a warm place until dough has puffed up. Press dough down, then divide mixture into 8. Roll these into balls using a floured rolling pin , and set aside on a floured surface. Cover again, and let rise for a further 20 – 30 minutes.

Roll out and stretch into shape by hand. Pat / brush Za’atar mix on top then bake until edges are golden brown (about 15 minutes.)
