Recipe's preparation

  1. Place oil, water, sugar and yeast into mixing bowl and mix 2 min/37°C/speed 3.
  2. Add flour and salt and knead 3 min/Dough mode. Transfer dough into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place to rise until doubled in size (approx. 1 hour). Proceed with recipe while dough rises.
  3. Meat topping
  4. Place garlic, onion and tomatoes into mixing bowl and chop 30 sec/speed 5. Transfer mixture into simmering basket, sprinkle with salt and leave to stand for 5 minutes, then squeeze out as much liquid as possible (see Tips).
  5. Place parsley and mint into mixing bowl and chop 3 sec/speed 6. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula.
  6. Add strained tomatoes mixture, cumin, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, paprika, allspice, chilli flakes, pomegranate molasses and mince and knead 3 min/Dough mode.
  7. Add pine nuts and stir well with aid of spatula. Transfer into a bowl and set aside.
  8. Assembly and baking
  9. Grease 2 large baking trays (approx. 30 x 40 cm) well with oil and place into oven. Preheat oven to 250°C (see Tips).
  10. Turn out risen dough onto a floured work surface. Using floured hands, divide dough into 6 equal portions (approx. 80 g each). Using a rolling pin, roll out each portion into a thin, flat circle (18-20 cm). Remove baking trays from oven and carefully place 1-2 dough circles onto each tray (see Tips).
  11. Divide half of the reserved meat topping between flatbreads on tray and gently spread thinly and evenly over each piece of dough. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and bake for 10-15 minutes (250°C) or until the edges of the flatbreads are golden and crispy. Transfer onto a wire rack and cover to keep warm.
  12. Place remaining dough circles onto baking trays. Gently spread remaining meat topping thinly and evenly over each piece of dough. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and bake for 10-15 minutes (250°C) or until edges of the flatbreads are golden and crispy. Serve with lemon wedges (see Tips).

Accessories you need



To achieve a crispy base on the flatbreads, ensure your baking trays are hot and well greased before placing flatbread onto it to bake. This prevents the breads from sticking. Grease and heat tray in between baking of flatbreads.

Freeze any leftover tomato juice to be added to stews or soups.

We suggested squeezing a little lemon juice over flatbreads just before serving.

Accompany with salads and garnish with chopped mint and parsley, if desired.
