I don't Know what you call it.. I just call it PIZZA TUTUP (Closed Pizza)

Feeling Pizza crave these few days, me and hubby. But I'm boring with regular pizza that I usually serve or usually we bought. So I made this style... it is yummy good looking indeed. And we love it. The sesame seed I sprinkled on top make this pizza slightly has Turkish touch... Since this is weekend (means time to fill up our refrig stock), I just can found these ingredients. But you can vary this with chicken, tuna, turkey or beef according to your taste.

For Pizza dough
Material I:
- 1 tbsp plain flour
- 1 packet (5 g) dry instant yeast
-  ½ tbsp caster sugar
- ½  cup warm water
Mix materials I stir until well blended. Cover with plastic film or kitchen towel, let it stand about 1 hour until fluffy.

Material II:
- about 2 ½ cup flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup olive oil
- about ½ cup warm water
Mix the flour and salt. Add  ingredients I, knead. mix in olive oil, knead again. Add warm water gradually, knead again until soft smooth and not sticky at your hand (there may be additional flour/ water at this stage). Cover with plastic film or  towel and let stand 1 hour until the dough become double.
For filling.
- 150 gr beef sausage. cut into small cubes (1x1cm)
- 150 gr sucuk. can be replaced with beef sausage. cut into small cubes (1x1 cm)
- 2 medium green peppers. seeded and cut into small cubes.
- 2 medium red bell pepper. Seeded and cut into small cubes.

- Some Olive, cut into pieces.
- About 150 grams of fresh mushrooms. cut into cubes.
- about 200 grams of cheddar cheese. Cut into cubes or grated harshly.
- about 100 grams white cheese.
- 1 large onion. finely chopped.
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped / grated fine.
- 2 tbsp homemade tomato paste (I mixed with chilly paste). Dilute with a little water so as not clotted.
- Enough Thyme and basil.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- 1 tablespoon butter for sauteing
For spread on top.
- 1 egg yolk beaten with 2 teaspoons water
- enough black and white sesame seed.

Heat the butter in a sauce pan. Saute onion and garlic until fragrant and transparent. Stir in and cook mushrooms until wilt. Stir in tomato paste solution. Season with salt and pepper. Then mix in sausage and sucuk, all parika , olives. Thyme and basil. Stir until all well blended. Cook for few minutes. Remove from heat. Set aside.
Divide the pizza dough into 2 equal part. Roll each with a rolling pin approximately 1 cm thin. Put filling mixture on it and sprinkle with cheese. Fold and close the pizza into half round shape. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle with sesame.
Bake in preheated oven, 160 deg C for approximately 25 minutes or until pizza bread well cooked.

Enjoy while warm with tomato sauce or chilly sauce and mayonnaise.
