Week 28: Pide (Turkey)
I've been obsessed with making pide ever since I heard about it, so I'm so glad to finally share it with all of you!
There are a lot of variations to making pide, such as adding vegetables, meat, or cheese as your filling.
In this recipe, I'm sharing a vegetarian version by adding vegetables but feel free to experiment with other fillings!
The name pide is derived from the Greek word pita. They are both very similar in taste and texture.
1 cup warm water
2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1 onion, sliced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 red pepper, sliced into small cubes
Dash of salt/pepper
2 cups spinach
1/3 cup feta cheese
In the bowl of your stand mixer, knead the yeast, water, flour, salt, and olive oil for 5 minutes. Cover and let rest for an hour.
In a pan, sauté the onions, garlic, red pepper, and salt/pepper over medium heat for 8 minutes. Add your spinach and feta and cook for two more minutes. Set aside to cool.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Divide the rested dough in half and roll out one into an oval shape. Fold the edges in to make a crust. Then pinch the ends. Repeat with the other half of the dough.
Brush the egg over the bread so it will turn out to be a golden brown when baked. Fill your pide with the mixture you had left to cool and bake for 17-20 minutes.
