Whole Grain Pizza & Fatayer Dough

Jump To Recipe
As the years pass and I get older, my love for pizza grows, while the way I like to have it changes. From thick white crust topped with as much cheese as the pizza dough can handle….to thin and crispy, whole-grain and topped with vegetables mostly. The same goes for fatayer…whole-grain, crispy and my favorite fillings are zaater or spinach.
This dough recipe is easy to make, and quite versatile with the type of flour you use. You can make pizza, flatbread or mini fatayer as pictured below. Let me know in the comments what you top your dough with, and what type of flour you used.
