  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp za’atar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup water

Garlic Butter

  • 3 Tbsp butter at room temperature

Instructions

Dough

  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, sugar and instant yeast.
  • Add in the warm water and olive oil. Mix until a shaggy dough is formed.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until a smooth dough is formed, about 5 minutes. It will still be slightly tacky but not sticky.
  • Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover. Proof until doubled in size.

Donair Turkey

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add oil and turkey. Stir often until cooked through.
  • In a small bowl, mix salt, za’atar, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, onion powder, black pepper, smoked paprika and cayenne.
  • Add donair seasoning to the cooked ground turkey. Stir to combine thoroughly. Cook for 1 minute. Add water and cook until the water has evaporated.
  • Set aside to cool.

Garlic Butter

  • In a small bowl, mix together butter and garlic. Set aside.

Donair Dipping Sauce

  • Mix sweetened condensed milk, vinegar and garlic powder in a small bowl. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to eat the garlic fingers.

To Make the Garlic Fingers

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Once the dough has doubled, punch it down and divide into two equal balls.
  • Working with one ball at a time, place the dough on a piece of parchment and roll out, or press and stretch with your fingers, until it’s 9-inches round.
  • Transfer the parchment and dough to a baking sheet.
  • Spread the garlic butter over the dough, 1 1/2 Tbsp for each round of dough.
  • Sprinkle half the turkey donair over the dough and top with 1/8 cup of onions and 1 cup of cheese.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melty and golden. Once out of the oven, sprinkle with parsley.
  • Repeat with second ball of dough.
  • Enjoy warm, served with Donair Dipping Sauce
