I couldn’t go on vacation without sharing the recipe for these little pizzas. This will undoubtedly be the recipe for my summer. I like !
I was inspired by the famous Lebanese manakish. They are cooked with zaatar, onion and olive oil. The result is a deliciously fragrant bread.
Zaatar is the most wonderful of spice blends. It consists of thyme, sumac and sesame seeds. You can of course buy it ready made. It lends itself to many recipes. I recommend you with a roast chicken, it’s a treat.
I accompany these manakish with burrata, small tomatoes and baby spinach. Believe me, with a small glass of white wine, a ray of sunshine, it’s fabulous!
Small pizzas with zaatar, burrata :
300 g of flour t 55
1 tsp dehydrated baker’s yeast
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
40 g of za’atar
Dissolve the yeast in very slightly lukewarm water.
In the bowl of the robot, put the flour, salt, water and yeast and olive oil.
Knead at medium speed for about 6 minutes.
Leave to rise in the closed bowl for about 1 hour.
In a small food processor, put the onion and chop finely.
Add the zaatar and mix. Add olive oil until you have a fairly liquid paste.
Heat the oven to 270°C. You can use a stone.
Place the dough on the floured work surface.
Cut it into 6 and spread each piece.
Spread the zaatar mixture on top.
Cook until they start to turn golden brown.
Serve with burrata, tomatoes, baby spinach and olives. Drizzle with a good drizzle of olive oil, and add a little salt.
To finish: you can also make 2 large pizzas rather than 6 small ones.
Instead of baby spinach, you can use arugula.
