DIRECTIONS

  • place 2/3 cup warm water in a small bowl, stir in teh sugar and then sprinkle with the yeast. Stir once or twice then set aside in a warm place for about 10 minutes till frothy.
  • meanwhile, make the filling. Mix together the onion, tomatoes, chopped parsley, chopped cilantro, paprika, cumin, butter and cheese. Season with salt and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour and 2 t salt.
  • Add the yeast mixture and enough warm water to make a fairly soft dough - about one cup.
  • knead the mixture into a ball and then knead on a floured work surface for 10-12 minutes till the dough is firm and elastic.
  • divide the dough into four pieces and roll each into an 8x12 inch rectangle.
  • spread the filling down the center of each rectangle, then fold into thirds, making a rectangle 8x4 inches.
  • roll out the dough again, till it is the same size as before and again fold into thirds, to make a smaller rectangle. (Don't worry if the filling squeezes out in some places - just push it back in).
  • place the pizzas on a buttered baking sheet, cover with oiled plastic wrap and leave in a warm place for abou 1 hour till slightly risen.
  • heat a griddle and brush with butter. prick the pizzas with a fork five or six times on both sides and then fry for about 8 minutes on each side, till crisp and golden.
  • serve pizzas immediately, with a little melted butter if you like, accompanied by an arugula salad and black olives.
