Saudi Lamb “Pizza” | Aysh abu Laham

Eat like your in Saudi Arabia

For the bread

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 1/2 tsp nigella, a.k.a. black caraway
  • Olive oil, for brushing

For the sauce

  • 2-3 tbsp. tahina (sesame seed puree)
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic, mashed
  • salt & pepper

For the topping

  • 3/4 lb ground lamb
  • 1 cup sliced green onion
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  1. Mix together all the dough ingredients and knead well. Breathe in deep; enjoy the spiced dream you’re creating. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in bulk (about 2 hours).
  2. As the dough puffs up into a giant, spiced pillow, call a dear friend you haven’t seen in a long time. Invite them over for an impromptu pizza party.
  3. Next, press the dough into a 1/2″-3/4″ thick rough round, being sure to leave the sides slightly lipped. Place the dough on a lined pizza pan (traditionally, they use an oversized round baking dish with high sides, but I don’t have something this size).
  4. Let the dough rest again, meanwhile preheat the oven to 350F. Brush liberally with olive oil and bake until light golden and cooked through (25-35 minutes, time will vary depending on the thickness of your dough).
  5. The dough will bake up firmer thanks to the eggs, which makes  a great base for the lamb topping.
  6. Mix together the tahini sauce in a small bowl. Be sure to add plenty of salt and pepper.
  7. Then fry up the lamb until the whole house smells like “good.”
  8. Remove from heat, add the sliced green onion, and stir in some of the tahini sauce (to taste, reserve the remainder for the table). Sprinkle on the salt and pepper.
  9. Top the pizza with the lamb mixture and finish it off with a few tomato slices for color and moisture.
