Lebanese Style Pide with Lemon Mint Yoghurt
  1. Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup lukewarm water; Add remaining lukewarm water, sugar and salt. Stir yeast mixture into 4 cups flour to make a very thick batter.
  2. Cover and stand in a warm place for 10 minutes, until frothy. Gradually stir in remaining flour and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic, adding additional flour if required
  3. Divide into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a 25cm oval shape, pinching the edges to create a 'boat' shape. Sprinkle with half the Perfect Italiano Perfect Pizza
  4. Heat remaining oil in a fry pan, fry pinenuts until golden, remove and drain on absorbent paper. Add onion to fry pan and cook until soft, add garlic and mince, cook until well browned.
  5. Stir in allspice, cinnamon, sumac, pinenuts, tomato and half the mint, season to taste and remove from heat. Spread spiced lamb mixture over each prepared dough base, and fold in edges.
  6. Sprinkle with remaining Perfect Italiano Perfect Pizza. Bake at 200°C for 10 minutes or until base is golden and cheese is bubbling
  7. Combine yogurt, remaining mint and lemon rind. Serve hot pide with a squeeze of lemon juice, dollop of minted yogurt and sprinkle with sumac if desired
Tips & Hints:
  • Sumac comes from a Middle Eastern shrub. The berries are ground to make Sumac powder which has a salty, lemony tang and a vibrant red/purple colour. Try it sprinkled on eggs, potatoes or sprinkle on the skin of a chicken before roasting.
