Vegetarian Zaatar Pizza (Manoushe) (Gluten-Free, Dairy Free)

Considered Lebanese pizza and often eaten for breakfast, how can you not love manoushe! Feel free to swap beef or chicken mince for the lamb mince, the results are delicious, or make the simple manoushe and add a little cheese to melt before it goes into the oven or once it comes out add some leftover roast chicken, avocado or grilled meats.

Course Main Course
Servings 6 Manoushe


  • 300 g PomPom Paddock Flour Mix
  • 2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tsp yeast
  • 250-300 ml water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp za’atar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber
  • 1 punnet grape tomatoes
  • Mint
  • Lemon
  • Yoghurt & lemon to serve Optional
  • Extra pomegranate molasses to serve
  • Pomegranate to serve optional


  • For the dough, place the flour into a mixing bowl and add the xanthan, dried yeast, salt and mix to combine. Add the water, using 250ml at first (you may need a little more) and oil to this and mix with your hand to combine. Knead the mix for 5 minutes, it will still be a little sticky, then cover with a tea towel and leave at room temp for 40 minutes. Gently knock the dough back, knead again for 1 minutes, using a little more flour if needed, then tip onto a bench and divide into 6 equal pieces or refrigerate here and store for up to 3 days, wrapped in the fridge.
  • Mix the za’atar and olive oil together and set aside.
  • Roll the dough between two sheets of baking paper until approx. 3mm thick. Peel the top layer off and spoon over the za’atar/oil mix and if making the lamb manoushe, spoon some lamb all around.
  • Remove the pan from the oven carefully then lift the manoushe into the pan, keeping the baking paper on the bottom. Watch as it begins to bubble from the heat of the pan then transfer back to the oven for 2 minutes. Don’t overcook, you want it soft.
  • Serve the simple Manoush with the cucumbers, tomatoes and mint scattered over or if making the lamb version, serve with yoghurt spooned over, some pomegranate, extra pomegranate molasses and lemon.
