Berber pizza take away joint, Rissani, Morocco
Madfouna is locally joked as being the Berber take on pizza in the southern Saharan regions and is even served to go in cardboard boxes from small take away stands in Rissani, Southern Morocco, 2017-12-16.
It’s not uncommon for these eateries to get so busy that people queue for more than an hour as the chefs rotate orders in the large fire ovens, which are also used to bake fresh bread and slow roast lamb, beef and whole chickens.
Adjacent to the crumbling ruins of Sijilmasa, a medieval Saharan city that served as a trading stronghold along the caravan routes transporting goods to sub-Saharan Africa, the modern-day town of Rissani humbly stands as a gateway to the Erg Chebbi dunes.
