Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Morocco’s surprising take on pizza

The Kingdom of Morocco is located in the Maghreb region of North Africa. The largest city is Casablanca, which is well known for the legendary movie of the same title. There are also numbers of small towns in the Sahara Desert. One of them is Rissani, a sleepy town famed for Madfouna. It is basically a stuffed baked bread like Calzone or Sausage Roll. The most traditional base filling is meat, such as lamb, beef or goat, onions, almonds, eggs, the local spices, and seasonings. It is traditional food among the Berbers, an ethnic group indigenous to North Africa who makes their living by herding cattle in the areas with little or no rain.

What is unique about this Moroccan version of pizza is the way it is baked. Because of the nomadic nature, they Berbers don’t always have a fixed oven. So, they developed a unique, practical way to bake their beloved bread with resources and materials available away from home.

How do they do that in the desert?

Enjoy learning about this unique food and cooking method, and think if you want to make one yourself.
