Sfiha – Sfiha Pastry famously known as ‘Arab Pizza’, originated from the Arabian Peninsula and Levant. Traditional sfiha are open-faced meat pies made with ground mutton. 

These open-faced Arab meat pies are made with Arabic-styled dough.

Qatayef – Qatayef is the general name of the dessert as a whole, but more specifically, the batter. The result of the batter being poured onto a round hot plate appears similar to pancakes, except only one side is cooked, then folded. The pastry is filled with either unsalted cheese or a mixture of any of hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, pistachios, raisins, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. It is then deep-fried or, less commonly, baked and served with a hot syrup or sometimes honey
