Fiteer is commonly known as Egyptian pizza. It has a very thin crust, however, almost like several layers of phyllo dough. It seems to be made with the main ingredient – sausage, tuna – sandwiched between layers and the cheese and other toppings placed on top of the top layer. It’s nice and light – a whole pizza between two people is a nice light meal, as opposed to a gastonomic metric ton.
Fiteer can also be had as a dessert item. Pictured here was the type we tried one afternoon: honey and cream fiteer. It was as rich and delicious as it sounded, topped with coconut, powdered sugar, and cherries. There is a variety of things you can have it with: nuts, chocolate, and coconut are but a few of the choices.
