Labneh Pizzas

Labneh Pizzas, talk about fusion.

Labneh Pizzas are not pizzas you will find in your local pizzeria and if you do, thy will be under the gourmet range and will cost significantly more. Look, my family also goes for the classic pizza flavors, Hawaiian ( my worst), Thai Chicken or Bacon and Mushroom. Nothing to get excited about.

We also don’t eat pizzas that often anymore, we try to eat less carbs and the low-carb pizza bases, is just not for me. I will rather abstain. Every now and then a treat is as good as a holiday, so when I pulled these Labneh Pizzas on my family, they loved it.


Labneh Pizzas

For your information: Labneh is a thick, rich yogurt cheese popular in the Eastern Mediterranean, Middle East, and Northern Africa. A good low fat substitute for cream cheese and sour cream, you can shape it into balls and roll in seasonings for a bite-size snack. However, did you know that Labneh can be eaten both cooked or just as it comes. It is used in savory sauces as it does not curdle at high temperatures, unlike normal yogurt. It is used as dip for bread, added to stew, and to add creaminess to soups.

So, I am always stocked up with Bedouin Labneh Products. These Labneh pizzas were delightful. We ate some uncooked and the other we had to just melt the mozzarella. Either way, they were really, really good.

So just a quick not on the pizza bases. I ordered these pre-baked bases from our local pizzeria. They are baked in a wood fire and have the char marks for flavor. I suggest you keep a few in your freezer for the pizza-craving nights.
