Turkish flat bread

Hi all! Lately it is raining and storming a lot here, so some days ago I thought what better as to bake some nice bread on a rainy day. In Europe you can find Turkish flat bread in many small Turkish grocery stores. Turkish flat bread, in Turkey called Pide, is a wonderful tasty bread and perfect to eat with a nice soup or salad. It can be used to make sandwiches as well. It doesn’t take a lot of time to make and is easy to prepare.
Have a nice day..!!


- 4 cups unbleached flour
- 3 Tsp. Active-dry yeast
- 1 ½ Tsp. Sugar
- 1 ½ Tsp. Salt
- 2 Tbsp. melted butter, cooled
- 3 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 ¼ cups lukewarm water
- Sesame seeds for topping


In a large bowl combine flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Mix well. Add in the butter and oil. Step by step add the water, while kneading the dough with your hands until smooth. The dough should not be sticky. Form into a ball and cover the bowl. Leave in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400 F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Punch down the dough and knead again well. Form or roll out into an oblong or round shape and place onto the baking sheet. With a sharp knife make some diamond-shaped cuts on the top of the bread. Brush with some cold water and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top. Cover the baking sheet and leave to rise for about 30 minutes. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
