When I was in Israel a few years back I tried this really great street food. I had gotten the recipe, but now have lost it and don't remember what it was called. It is a cross between a pancake and a bread. The one I had had za'atar, thin sliced tomatoes, and red onion fried into one side and was flipped over. Does anyone know what this is called?
I was able to track down the dish. It is called Lahuhe.
Thank you to everyone for trying to help me out.
Sounds like a variation on פיתה זעתר "Pita Za'atar". It's just a thick focaccia-style Pita with Za'atar (at a minimum)... the local street vendors add other random pizza-style stuff like tomatoes, onions, etc. almost exactly like traditional Neapolitan Pizza. The source of the word "Pizza" is Pita of course... it's exactly the same concept.
The recipe is pretty simple:
- Other stuff, to taste
Combine and eat. The end.
My guess it's either Druze Pita (Recipe and photos on YouTube) or Man'oushe (Lebanese pizza)
