1/2 lb
lean ground beef
225 g
1 tbsp
olive oil
15 mL
small onion, chopped
garlic clove, chopped
1 tbsp
sweet paprika
1/2 tsp
ground allspice
tomato, seeded and chopped
2 tbsp
plain yogurt
30 mL
1 tbsp
flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped, plus more for garnish
1 tbsp
mint, finely chopped, plus more for garnish
Greek pitas or naan breads, about 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter


Step 1

With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.

Step 2

In a skillet over medium-high heat, lightly brown the meat in the oil, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Add the onion, garlic and spices. Continue cooking for 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat.

Step 3

Transfer the mixture to a food processor. Add the tomato, yogurt and herbs. Pulse the mixture a few times until creamy (see note). Adjust the seasoning.

Step 4

Place the pitas on the prepared baking sheet and spread each one with one-quarter of the meat mixture. Bake for 12 minutes or until the flatbreads are lightly golden. Let cool, then garnish with more parsley and mint.


Be careful not to grind the meat mixture too finely—you want a meaty texture, not a paste.
