Selam Everybody..... Merhaba from Turkey...

Same as bread, pide is a staple dish in Turkey. People eat pide anytime, anywhere.  Pide is a Turkish pizza look a like-with Turkish flair. It has a chewy texture rather than 'bread-y'.

With typical distinctive charcoal aroma from traditional stone oven pide easily can be found in every corner in Turkey. The topping and filling can be vary in each regions.

If you are my regular reader you should already know very well that I made and post many pide recipes. Because as I mentioned earlier this famed Turkish dish is a staple and daily meal here. I like pide especially with meat topping. I made pide at least once in week for our dinner or lunch.

Generally we eat pide with simple salad like mix of lettuce, tomatoes, green onion, olive or other vegetables, with simply olive oil, salt and lemon dressing. Or sometime with Ezme (similar to meze). Also to complete the whole dish we serve Ayran for the drink.

You can find pide salonu/ pide restorant with stone oven like this in every corner in Turkey
And to enrich your pide recipe today I'll share my peynirli pide recipe or pita bread with cheese topping. Peynir means Cheese in Turkish.
Basically making this peynirli pide is same like my other pide recipe except for the topping.

You should prepare pide bread first then roll it into long oval shape then fill with any topping you want. No tomato pasta or ketchup here! 😊 We are making traditional Turkish pide.
Today I like cheese as topping, with some tomato slices. I use two kind of cheese, crumble white cheese then above it generously shredded kaşar peynir or similar to cheddar cheese.
You can use any easy melting cheese you like.

Pide; Dalam mangkok besar, larutkan ragi, gula dan 1 sdm terigu dengan 200 ml air hangat, aduk hingga semua larut. Diamkan sekitar 5~10 menit hingga berbusa.
Setelah campuran ragi berbusa, masukkan terigu dan garam sambil diuleni hingga tercampur rata. Masukkan juga olive oil, lanjutkan mengulen hingga kalis. Proses mengulen ini bisa manual atau dengan stand mixer.

Tutup adonan dengan serbet lembab atau plastic wrap dan diamkan hingga mengembang 2 kali volume.

Kempiskan adonan pide dan bagi menjadi 4 bagian sama besar, bisa ditimbang atau dikira-kira saja. Bulatkan tiap bagian. 
Ambil 1 bulatan adonan, taruh di meja kerja yang telah ditaburi tepung semolina (atau terigu serba guna jika tidak ada semolina), gilas dengan rolling pin membentuk lonjong panjang, sekitar 1 cm tebalnya. Pindahkan ke atas kertas baking dan taruh di loyang baking.

Taburkan keju feta lalu parutan cheddar cheese. Ambil potongan tomat, tata diatas keju.

Lalu lipat kedua bagian tepi pide, saling tumpuk diujungnya, membentuk seperti perahu. Lakukan prosedur yang sama kesemua adonan. Diamkan sekitar 30 menit sebelum dipanggang.
