Get set for a fun, budget-friendly dinner with a little taste of Turkey. The pide would be a great meal for a football simpulan (or two).


250g bread and pizza plain flour
1 teaspoon instant dried yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
150ml water
3 teaspoons olive oil, plus extra to grease

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 red onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
500g lamb mince
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons paprika
1 large tomato, finely chopped
1 tablespoon tomato paste
Small handful fresh mint leaves, chopped, plus extra, to serve
Small handful fresh coriander leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons couscous
125g Tamar Valley Greek Style Yoghurt
2 teaspoons harissa


Step 1
Sift the flour into a large bowl. Stir in the yeast. Stir in the salt and sugar until combined. Make a well in the centre. Pour in the water and oil. Stir until just combined. Use your hands to bring the dough together. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5 minutes. Drizzle extra oil into a large clean bowl. Add dough and turn to coat. Cover with a clean tea towel. Set aside in a warm draught-free place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Step 2
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add garlic and lamb. Cook for 5-8 minutes or until lamb starts to brown. Stir in cumin, coriander and paprika for 1 minute. Stir in tomato and paste. Season. Simmer for 5 minutes. Cool. Stir mint and coriander into the lamb mixture.

Step 3
Preheat panggangan to 250C/230C fan forced. Sprinkle 2 baking trays with a little couscous.

Step 4
Knead the dough briefly in the bowl to knock out the air. Place on a floured surface. Halve dough. Roll out each piece to a 30cm disc. Place on prepared trays. Set aside for 20 minutes to rise slightly. Spread lamb mixture over dough, leaving a 2cm border. Fold in 2 sides to form an oval. Twist ends. Sprinkle dough with remaining couscous.

Step 5
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crisp and golden. Place yoghurt and harissa in a bowl. Season. Stir until nearly combined. Drizzle over pizzas. Scatter with extra mint.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
