These are just FABULOUS. The dough is soft, silky, fragrant and easy to work with, despite the slight stickiness. The weather was very humid, and I had to increase the quantity of flour some, but I still kept the dough soft and tacky. The flavor of the dough is great. I think that it's important to use a fruity evoo, it's discernable in the finished pastry. I used the suggested mozzarella and za'taar toppings, but I'm thinking that this dough is just too good to stop at them. I had a lot of fun making these, both for my customers and my family. It's an easy treat, also a welcome side to a summer salad. This is already one of my favorite little extras, thank you so much Jamilah!

These were terrific! The dough came out smooth and easy to work with. Mine rose quite a bit while baking and came out soft and tender, just as I wanted them. I topped with mozzarella cheese. I served these with Koftit Roz (Rice Meatballs) Koftit Roz (Rice Meatballs) ; the next day I split open one of the pastries, stuffed a couple of sliced meatballs in, and enjoyed a delicious lunch. Great recipe - thanks for posting it!

These are wonderful. This is easily the best home made mana'eesh dough i've ever made/had. (but don't tell my mama). I think i'm going to use this recipe for all my mana'eesh.. spinach, meat, zaatar. I used a combination of mozzarella and haloumi cheese. mmm...so good.

These were gone quickly. I used a mixture of grated cheeses but i could not find za´taar topping which is a pity really. I would like to try some other toppings too, the dough is excelent!
