Turkish Pide Base

Submitted by: FAELFE
Turkish Pide Base

Introduction

I use this recipe to make a base for a filled Turkish pide. Basically, make the base and roll it into an oval shape. Choose a filling, usually meat & stir fried veggies or cheese. Spread your choice of filling on the pide and then fold up about 1cm all along the sides, pulling them together at the tips.

In the pictured pide, I cut up zucchini, eggplant, and onion and sauteed with garlic and a vegetarian ground-beef substitute. Then mixed tomato sauce and cottage cheese in to create the filling.

This recipe can easily be vegan if you use olive oil or just forgo the egg used to brown the pide, and then use vegan ingredients.

Directions

The nutrition info for this recipe is ONLY for the base--it does not include any fillings!

1. Mix flour, salt, sugar, yeast and water in a bowl, knead until well-mixed. Cover, and let it rest for an hour until it has risen.
2. Prepare filling.
3. Set the oven to 200 degrees. Divide the dough into four pieces. (Rub some vegetable oil to your hands beforehand so that the dough is easier to handle). Using a rolling pin, obtain circular flat pieces. Then extend each piece from the sides, using your hands, and obtain oval shaped pieces.
4. Spread filling on center of ovals.
5. Fold one cm. of the dough from the sides. Bring together at the tips. Brush with egg. Cook on lightly greased oven trays at 200C/400F, for about 20 minutes until the dough starts changing color, and the cheese is bubbling. When out of the oven, brush with olive oil or butter, before serving.
