The Top Easy Dough Recipe

Perfect for manakeesh, fatayer, pizza, or just cheese balls!

Looking for the Perfect Recipe?

It can be hard to find a recipe for the perfect dough that is soft and fluffy but still has a tad-bit of crunch. But this dough recipe is truly wonderful. It leaves you with a fluffy texture and perfect air holes every time, regardless of whether you roll it thin or thick. It’s a game-changer, making it easy to achieve that perfect balance in every bite.

Once you’ve got the dough down, the fun really begins with the toppings. You can go classic with a rich tomato sauce, mozzarella, and fresh basil for a timeless Margherita. Or, get a little adventurous with toppings like prosciutto, arugula, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. If you’re a fan of bold flavors, try a combination of spicy pepperoni, jalapenos, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. For a gourmet touch, caramelized onions, goat cheese, and fresh figs create a deliciously sweet and savory blend. The possibilities are endless, and each variation enhances the dough’s wonderful texture, making every bite a delightful experience.

The Best Toppings:

  1. Za’atar! (Check out my manakeesh recipe)
  2. Cheese and eggs (for a quiche-type)
  3. Tomato sauce and mozeralla cheese
  4. Goat cheese and onions
  5. Be creative!!
