One day my mom was in the kitchen making these small meat, cheese, and spinach pies that were indicative of our Middle Eastern culture called mo3ajanat; which happens to be my all time favorite thing to eat and snack on. As a newlywed, I wanted to do something special for my husband on his birthday and I ended up making this dough to create a heart shaped pizza! Food truly is the way to a man’s heart; he loved it. Today I will be sharing with you this super easy 6 ingredient dough recipe!
Total Time: 15 min to make
15 min to bake at 350 degrees (till brown underneath)
Serving size: 2 large pizzas or 3-4 medium pies
5 cups of all purpose flour (preferably Gold’s brand)
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup of olive oil
2 cups of water
1 packet of active dry yeast
- First, grab a large sized bowl and add 2 cups of lukewarm water (room temperature) and add 2 cups of flour to that along with the salt, sugar, and packet of yeast.
- Mix it all together very well with a whisk and set aside for 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes have passed, add the olive oil and the rest of the flour which is 3 cups. Mix this all together very well with a spatula or your hands. I like to use my hands!
- If your dough is sticky; slowly add more flour to balance that out. I find Gold’s brand all purpose flour works best. When I used a different brand; I found that I had to use more flour since the dough was still a bit sticky.
How easy was that? You can use this to make pizza which I have done numerous times or the traditional Middle Eastern meat, cheese, and spinach pies. Enjoy!
*Make sure to always oil your pan when baking so the dough doesn’t stick!
