“These Moroccan Pides are a fabulous twist on the traditional pizza. Lamb and pine nuts infused with Morrocan flavours and zesty marinated zucchini are encased by a crisp yet soft pide casing. They look amazing and taste even better and are absolutely perfect for any dinner party. They are also brilliantly complemented by tzatziki which you can purchase or make your own by following my tzatziki recipe (see Easy Peasy Tzatziki).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. PIDE DOUGH: Combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the water and oil. Use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until combined and a soft dough forms. Turn dough onto a well-floured surface and knead for 5 minutes or until smooth. Set aside in a bowl covered with a tea towel.
  2. LAMB AND ZUCCHINI TOPPING: Preheat the oven to 200°C Combine vinegar, 2 cloves of the garlic, 1/4 cup oil, 1 tsp cumin and 1/4 cup tomato paste in a small baking dish. Add zucchini and toss to coat then season with salt and pepper. Cover with alfoil then cook in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over medium heat and cook onion, stirring for 3 minutes or until soft. Add lamb and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Add allspice, 2 tsp cumin, remaining tomato paste and 2 tbs water. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Stir in the pine nuts. Season to taste with salt and pepper, cover and set aside to cool.
  4. TO ASSEMBLE PIDES: Divide dough into 2 portions. Roll out 1 dough portion on a lightly floured surface to make an oval shape about 15cm wide and 30cm long. Spoon half of the lamb mixture down the centre, leaving a 4cm border at each end.
  5. Lay half the zucchini slices diagonally, spaced evenly down over the mince mixture on the dough. Fold in the sides of the dough to enclose filling slightly, leaving an opening down the centre. Place on a lined baking tray. Repeat with remaining dough, lamb and zucchini.
  6. Bake pides in oven at 200°C for 15 minutes or until dough is golden brown and crisp. Serve pides with tzatziki and garnished with fresh coriander leaves.
