Turkish Pide Bread

10 Mins



340g Kara Dough Balls

100g mince (either beef or lamb)

1/2 white onion

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1/4 green pepper

3 tbsp tomato puree

1 red chilli, finely chopped (add more for extra spice)

1tsp smoked paprika

1tsp ground cumin

Salt and pepper

50g feta cheese, crumbled

To garnish: pomegranate seeds, sesame seeds, flat leaf parsley


Blend the onion, tomato puree, garlic, green pepper, spices, salt and pepper until transformed into a chunky consistency.

Add the mince to the blender and blitz to form a chunky paste.

Cut the dough in two and roll out the pizza base to the desired thickness.

Spread the meat paste onto the base and top with crumbled feta cheese.

Bake on a pizza stone for around 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley, pomegranate seeds and sesame seeds before serving.

Top tip: Swap the meat filling with cheese or vegetables to adapt to vegetarian and vegan menus.
