Bedouin Pizza (Araies lahma) recipe

Bedouin Pizza

I had a memorable evening at the Petra Kitchen cooking school in Jordan. What I remember best about this making this treat was its crunchy smokey bite, you couldn’t eat just one slice. Create a taste of Jordan in your own kitchen, these pizza bites require few ingredients and are best enjoyed right after they’re made.

Serve them while they’re nice and hot. Eat one. Repeat.
