Last night Jonas and I threw a housewarming to introduce our new apartment to our friends.
We had fun, but we suddenly realised that we’re older now. Those raucous, vodka-guzzling plastic-cup parties of our youth have been replaced with much more civilised discussions over Penfolds in real wine glasses. It was obviously a gradual process but we were still shocked to discover where we ended up.
With the morning after hangover firmly in place - red wine is much worse than vodka - I have junk food on the mind and so my WHB entry this week is khoubz pizza (herb: oregano).
Jonas created this little treasure one evening when were low on everything except flatbread and cheese. The recipe is the incredibly easy and the results are deliciously satisfying. Really!
The version in the photograph is a margherita (cheese and tomato) but you can obviously add anything you want. I love a variety of combinations using olives, artichokes, fetta, cooked sausage and salami.
Margherita Khoubz Pizza
Jonas’ very own recipe. Serves 1 for dinner, 2 for a snack.
1 round of khoubz (Arabic flat bread)
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Good sprinkling of dried oregano
As much chilli paste/powder/flakes as you desire
As much cheese as you can take
1. Crush garlic and mix with tomato paste. Add chilli and a pinch of dried oregano. Spread over the flatbread.
2. Top with cheese then toppings.
3. Sprinkle over as much dried oregano as desired then bake in the oven until the cheese has melted and the edges of the bread are crispy.
