Lebanon = Manakish

In Lebanon, Manakish is a flatbread comprising part of the morning meals. With it’s roots in Levantine Arabic food, the dish is also considered to be a staple mezze dish.

Sliced/folded, cold/hot, the dough of the pizza bread is topped with with a spice mix of thyme, sesame seeds and sumac, called za’taar, before you throw it in the oven to bake it. If you would rather have it fancy, then dress it up with cheese or meat – it is equally delicious with or without it!
