Serves: 6 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


Dough ingredients for home oven: (Makes 8 Pide)

  • 500g All-purpose or Bread flour
  • 180g Water
  • 180g Whole Milk (Can be replaced with more water)
  • 1 Tsp (4g) Dried Active Yeast
  • 1 Tsp (7.5g) Salt
  • 1 Tsp (5g) Sugar

For the Pizza oven, reduce the liquids to:

  • 150g Water
  • 150g Whole Milk
  • Also works great with only water


  • Cheese (I used Kasar and Kashkaval)
  • Sucuk
  • Pastirma
  • Eggs
  • Tomatoes
  • Chilies
  • Spinach
  • Feta Cheese
  • For the meat topping, check out the lahmacun video linked above


Dough Directions:

  1. Add the water and milk to a jug and heat to between 25-35c
  2. Add the yeast and sugar and stir well, then let sit for 10 minutes
  3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, add the flour and salt and combine them
  4. Make a well in the flour, and pour in the yeasty liquid
  5. 5- Using the dough hook attachment, combine the liquid and flour on low speed until the liquid is absorbed
  6. Knead for 5-7 minutes on medium speed until the dough is soft, smooth, and elastic
  7. Divide the dough into 6-8 portions, and roll into dough balls
  8. Line a tray with greaseproof paper, then flour it, and place the dough balls ontop
  9. Flour the top of the dough balls then cover with a kitchen towel and let them rise for 30-40 minutes

To assemble the Pide:

  1. Flour your work surface, then place a ball of dough in the center
  2. Flatten it to knock out any gas, then shape it into a rough circle shape
  3. Using a rolling pin, and your hand to hold the dough in place, roll it into an oval shape
  4. Place the oval onto a piece of greaseproof paper (if you don't have a pizza peel)
  5. Place your cheese along the center of the pide, then add on your other toppings
  6. Fold the sides of the pide over the cheese and filling, then pinch the two edges together to form the corners

To cook in a home oven:

  1. Place an oven tray upside down at the base of your oven, and another upside down at the top of your oven near the grill/broiler
  2. Preheat the oven to its hottest temperature for at least half an hour
  3. Use a cutting board or a cake lifter, to slide the pide WITH its greaseproof paper onto the lower oven tray
  4. Let this bake here until the bottom has browned and the edges have started to go golden (4 minutes in my oven)
  5. Remove it from the oven, the brush the crusts with some butter
  6. Place this back in the oven, this time at the top, for about 2 minutes until it is sufficiently browned

To cook in a pizza oven:

  1. Preheat your oven to about 400c
  2. Slide your pizza into the oven using your peel
  3. Cook for 20 seconds, and when the side closest to the heat goes vertical, remove it from the oven and rotate 180 degrees
  4. Put this back in the oven for 20 more seconds till the second side goes vertical
  5. Rotate once more and cook for 20 seconds further
  6. Optionally brush with butter and place back in for 5 seconds
