  • 4 cups of white all purpose flour.
  • 2 cups of water +/- depending on your flour.
  • A dash of salt.
  • Melted butter – almost a full cup.

For the savory stuffing

  • Cheese canned tuna, vegetables, sausage, chicken, minced beef.... whatever you like as a pizza toppings can go in there.

For the sweet stuffing

  • Nutella your fav. jam, custard, nuts and dried fruits.....

Topping for the savory

  • I like to mix an egg with black olives and bell pepper. But you can skip it and serve it plain.

Topping for the sweet

  • Powdered sugar is the best.


  • First, mix the flour and salt and add the first cup of water and knead very well then add the remaining bit by bit until you get a dough that is very elastic and sticky.
  • Divide the dough into 6 balls, grease a deep dish and put the balls in it.
  • Let it rest for 15 min. and turn your oven on to the highest degree possible, mine was 550 F.
  • Roll the first ball to be very thin that you can see your counter top through, brush the surface generously with melted butter.
  • Arrange your stuffing in the middle and carefully fold all 4 sides over the center.
  • Roll the next ball until very thin and brush as you’ve done with the first ball.
  • Place the already done one, folded side down, then fold the outer one and brush with more butter as you fold.
  • Repeat the process with for a third layer. Brush generously with butter and add the suggested toppings if you would like to.
  • Place in a pizza pan- or any oven pan- for 10-15 minutes until done.
