SUCUKLU PIDE (Turkish style sausage Pizza) / #turkishpiderecipe

Sucuk (read: soujouk) is a dry, spicy sausage in Turkish cuisine eaten from the Balkans to the Middle East and Central Asia.
Sucuk consists of ground meat (usually beef, but pork is used in non-Muslim countries and horse meat in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan), with various spices including cumin, sumac, garlic, salt, and red pepper, fed into a sausage casing and allowed to dry for several weeks. It can be more or less spicy; it is fairly salty and has a high fat content.
Sucuk may be eaten cooked (when raw, it is very hard and stiff). It is often cut into slices and cooked without additional oil, its own fat being sufficient to fry it. At breakfast, it is used in a way similar to bacon or spam. It is fried in a pan, often with eggs (e.g. as breakfast in Egypt), accompanied by a hot cup of sweet black tea. Sucuk is sometimes cooked with haricot bean or incorporated into pastries at some regions in Turkey. In Bulgaria, raw, sliced sujuk is often served as an appetizer with rakia or other high alcoholic drinks. In Lebanon, cooked sliced sujuk is made into sandwiches with garlic sauce and tomato.
Sucuk is also commonly used as a topping on savoury pastries in Iraq, Syria, Israel and Lebanon; sujuk shawarma is also occasionally found. In these countries, it is often regarded as an Armenian speciality known as Armenian sausage. Akin to sujuk shawarma, scjuk döner was also introduced in Turkey in late 1990s.

Beside Kıymali pide and tavuklu pide, this sucuklu pide is the most favorite in my family dinner table. I love it too. Frankly speaking, at first time, I didn't like this sucuk at all.. it's new and had different taste in my tongue.. and I didn't like the smell.. :p . I think too much cumin in it. But after sometimes... slowly I can take this meal and become fan of it  d(^,^)b 
And pide (pita bread), as you know is Pizza a la Turkey so I believe it will be soon your family's favorite too...

Serve: 8 pieces medium size

PIDE bread Ingredients:
 4 cups flour, divide.
 4 tsp instant dry yeast
 1 tablespoon sugar
 1 ½ cups lukewarm water, divide.
 6 tablespoons olive oil (or other vegetable oil)
 2 teaspoon salt
Topping ingredients:

 ± 300 g sucuk (Turkish sausage), cut round about 3 mm thick
 8 large tomatoes, peeled, discard seeds and cut into small cubes.
 8 ~ 9 pieces big size green charleston pepper, cut into 2 or 3 parts lengthwise.
 400 gr 
crumbled feta cheese.
 300 ~ 400 g cheddar cheese, shredded coarse.
Spreads over:
1 egg yolk beaten with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil.

For PIDE bread dough: 
Take 2 tablespoons flour (from those 4 cups portion), mixed with instant yeast and sugar, put ½ cup warm water, stir well and leave in warm place until fluffy about 30 minutes. Once it fluffy and foamy, combine remaining flour, remaining warm water, salt and olive oil. Knead until dough is smooth and not sticky on your fingers. At this stage you might be need a little warm water or flour to form smooth dough. Do it carefully. Cover with plastic stretch or kitchen towel and let stand in warm place until fluffy and double in volume. Hit/ flatten the dough to remove air, divide into 8 equal parts and form small balls.

Finishing: Take one part (one ball) and roll with rolling pin to form a long oval shape. Give toppings: crumbled feta cheese, tomatoes, grated cheddar cheese then arrange sucuk and carliston pepper above them. Fold each edge to the middle and attach each both end to form such a mini-boat. (see picture above). Brush the bread with beaten eggyolk. Do same thing until all finished. Bake in oven 160 ⁰C for 25 ~ 30 minutes until golden brown.
Serve warm.
