Safiha (Lahm bi ajeen)

So I was grocery shopping the other day and I stumbled upon my dream come true; a frozen pizza/calzone dough ball. I have struggled for years trying to make the perfect Fatayer with no luck, so I decided to give up (for now) and try this ready made frozen dough. All I had in the fridge was some beef and some herbs so I decided to make Safayih.
First thaw the dough balls at room temperature, then prepare this mix:
1 1/2 lb minced beef
5 tbs diced cilantro
2 diced tomatoes
2 minced cloves of garlic
1 diced onion
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tbs tomato paste
1 tbs sumac
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp mixed Arabic spice
A pinch of cayenne red pepper
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut the dough into 2inch diameter balls. Roll them out and spread with beef mixture. Place on foiled cookie sheets in a preheated 400F oven for about 10 minutes or until the bottom of the pies are golden brown.
Now the original recipe calls for lamb not beef. I just can’t stand the strong smell of lamb that’s why I always use beef.
Enjoy!
