Sumac Chicken Lavash Pizza

What could a Sumac Chicken Lavash be? A sumac is a flowering plant while a lavash is a Persian flat bread. Put these two together and you get an extra ordinary pizza inspired by Persian cultures. 

lavash bread (to be found in Middle Eastern food stores)
one boneless, skinless chicken breast
one tablespoon sumac
one teaspoon yellow mustard seeds, ground
one teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
canned artichoke hearts
sun-dried tomatoes
sliced zucchini
grated cheese (I used a mix of cheddar and gruyere)
green onion for garnish


1. Whisk sumac, mustard seed, chili, salt and pepper together in a bowl and rub on the chicken breast.
2. Grill the spice-rubbed chicken, then cut into chunks.
3. Sprinkle the lavash bread with vegetables, cheese and chicken and bake in a 350-degree oven until the cheese is melted (about 10 minutes).
4. Sprinkle with green onion and serve by itself or with tzatziki.
