  Frozen bread dough loaf 2
  Ground beef/Ground lamb 5 Pound
  Onions 2 , diced (Dry Onion Flakes As A Time Saver)
  Tomato paste 3 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  Allspice To Taste
  Oil 1 Tablespoon
  Pine nuts 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Combine meat, onions and seasonings and cook with little oil until browned fully.
3. There are few things that you can add to the meat to flavor it even more, such as adding yogurt or pomegranate molasses or Tahini sauce or tomato sauce. I added tomato paste and mixed it well.
4. Add the pine nuts.
5. Cut the dough out to form about 3-4 rounds. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
6. Place some of the meat filling onto the dough.
7. Place on an oiled baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes. But depending on your oven it might take less or more time.
8. Broil the top to a nice golden brown color.
9. Do not leave for a long time under the broiler, they burn fast!

10. Serve with favorite beverage with garnish as desired.
