Lebanese Mankousheh Recipe

  • Author: Nick K
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 3.5 min
  • Total Time: 13.5 min
  • Yield: 6 slices


  1. Dough, one
  2. Thyme Zaa’tar Blend, 2.5 tbsp
  3. Olive oil, 2 tbsp
  4. Salt, 1/4 tsp


  1. Place the pizza stone in the grill and pre-heat it for about 10 minutes on high.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the thyme zaa’tar blend in a bowl with the olive oil.
  3. Press the dough by hand.
  4. Dust and roll the dough on both sides into a 12″ diameter circle.
  5. Spread a thin layer of the blend evenly on the dough using a spoon.
  6. Note that you may not need the entire thyme blend. All you need is a thin layer.
  7. Sprinkle some salt evenly all over.
  8. Pick up the mankousheh with a pizza peel and slide it gently on the hot pizza stone.
  9. Set a timer for 3 minutes.
  10. Open the grill and lift the mankousheh with the peel to check if the bottom is to your liking.
  11. It usually takes 3 to 4 minutes. But as always, it depends on your grill and how hot the pizza stone is.
  12. Pick up the mankousheh with the peek and place it in a large tray.
  13. Slice it and enjoy with your favorite veggies like tomatoes, cucumbers and mint.


Note that the thyme we’re talking about here is not the thyme spice that you find in the herbs aisle at the grocery store.

The zaa’tar blend you need is a natural blend of deep green roasted thyme, roasted wheat, tangy sumac, and toasted sesame seeds.
