This recipe is from Greg Malouf, master of modern Middle Eastern cuisine. Manoushi bread is the number one snack food all around Lebanon and Syria. Essentially, it is a sort of pizza although a little bit softer and more chewy than the Italian version. Having tested numerous bread doughs, in all sorts of ovens and on all sorts of baking sheets, the one thing we can say with certainty is that this style of Middle Eastern flat bread is immeasurably improved by baking on a hot stone. Most kitchenware stores stock them – they’re often called pizza stones. They’re not expensive, and if your family are pizza fans they’re especially well worth the investment. Prep time doesn't include rising.
