For the dough:

1 tsp dry active yeast
0,5 tsp sugar
1+1/2 cup of warm water
4,5 cups of flour (you can use pain wheat)+
Little oil to brush the dough
Ingredients for the topping:

12 oz of minced beef or lamb (I always use 85 % lean beef)
1 big onion
2-3 cloves of garlic
2 Tbsp of butter
1,5 cups of fresh curly parsley
1 cup of fresh mint
1 medium tomato
1 tsp of chili pepper
1 jalapeño (optional) (I personally use pickled hot peppers instead of jalapeños)
1 tsp paprika (optional)
1 tsp of cumin (optional)
salt according to your own taste
Juice of 1 lemon
little oil to brush the dough


In a small bowl mix yeast and the sugar. Add 1/2 cup of warm water, stir well, close the lid (or cover with plate). You can leave the bowl on the counter but I usually put it somewhere warm. Warmness accelerates the process and better activates the yeast. Activating yeast is important to have a better rising dough. Keep the mixture warm for about 15 minutes without opening the lid. When the time is up, you should have a nice foamy liquid. Even if you do not, still keep it and make the dough. It will still work.
