A classic Sephardic finger food that has become popular at many Ashkenazic tables, including my own. Special thanks to my dear friend Mari G., who introduced me to this delicacy and shared this recipe from Debbie G.


Prepare the Meat Mixture


Mix all ingredients except for pizza rounds together. Place in a container and refrigerate to marinate overnight.


For homemade tamarind sauce, also called oot, place one 18-ounce (510-gram) jar prune butter, two jars lemon juice, and one jar sugar or sugar alternative in a large pot. Bring all ingredients to a boil and simmer for two hours.

Assemble and Bake


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper and spray with cooking spray. Lay out pizza rounds. Allow rounds to thaw and rise for approximately 40 minutes.


Spread one tablespoon of the meat mixture on each round, going all the way to the edges.


Bake for 25–30 minutes, until brown around the edges.
