Street Food – A Moroccan pizza

A delicious street food pizza made the Moroccan way brings back locals’ memories of female relatives rising before anyone to prepare this very simple but wholesome pancake.

Msemen or rghaif is a simple thick square pancake enjoyed at breakfast tables and small female led cafes throughout the country, cooked very traditionally directly on a hotplate and found commonly around the Hipmarrakech riads of the Medina. These are eaten as they are or with butter.

As a lunchtime snack however, these Msemen are coated with a spiced tomato base and soft vegetables that makes a very tasty, if only a little greasy, meal. This wonderfully simple ‘Moroccan pizza’ twist (pictured) is enjoyed by many locals and should be on any visitors’ culinary checklist.
