The Middle East has been on a roll with their over-the-top pizza creations as of late…not sure what they’re pumping into the water over there, but we now have a lead on one of the coolest pizzas we’ve seen in some time: The Patriot.
The Patriot is a seven-pizza-in-one dish, spotted at a cozy restaurant called Al Saniour out in Lebanon. The table-long pizza was spotted by our Foodbeast video producer Marc Kharrat during a night out in Beirut (you know…the ‘Paris’ of the Middle East). Marc tells us that the cafe is most known for being open into the late hours for party goers to end their night (or for the serious ragers, to start the night). Some might remember that the Middle Eastern branch of Pizza Hut recently released a ridiculous pizza that infuses entire cheeseburgers right into the crust. Don’t be fooled though, The Patriot came out long before and has been a go-to dish for the neighboring community for some time.
Za’atar: Middle Eastern dried herbs mixed with sesame seeds, dried sumac, salt and other spices Jibneh w/ Pepperoni: cheese and pepperoni Kishk: a fine powder made of a mixture of cracked wheat and yogurt, which has been carefully fermented Sojouk: consists of ground meat with various spices usually including cumin, sumac, garlic, salt, and red pepper, fed into a sausage casing and allowed to dry for several weeks, usually fairly spicy Shanklish: a cow’s milk or sheep milk cheese generally topped with finely-chopped tomato, onion, and olive oil Jibneh: cheese Choco Mozzarella: don’t knock the idea of chocolate spread and mozzarella cheese until you’ve tried it, it’s a perfect segue into dessert
