What Do You Need To Make Cheese Pide? Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups of white all-purpose flour
  • Olive oil, extra virgin, 2 tablespoons
  • 100 ml of milk
  • Brown sugar, 1 tablespoon
  • yeast, 1 teaspoon
  • Sesame seeds, 1 teaspoon
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • Mozzarella cheese, 1.5 cups
  • Cheddar cheese, 1.5 cups

How To Make The Cheese Pide?

Combine the flour, yeast, sugar, and sea salt. To create a firm, smooth dough, combine all the ingredients with 80 ml of water and oil. Lay the dough on a surface lightly dusted with flour and knead for 5 minutes or until it is elastic and smooth. Return to the basin, cover it, and let it be proof for about an hour or until it has doubled in size.

Make the filler in the interim. For about 5 minutes, or until transparent, sauté the onion in hot oil in a frying pan over a medium-high flame. When the spinach is tender, and all the liquid has drained, add the cumin and continue cooking. Take the food out of the heat and let it cool.

Heat the oven to 220°C/200°F/gas 7 once the dough has risen. Disperse the dough into four pieces on a work surface lightly dusted with flour. Place the dough ovals on a non-stick baking sheet approximately 30 x 20 cm.

Each dough oval should have the chilled spinach filling placed in the center, with a 2 cm border all the way around. Over the filling, strew goat’s cheese and dill. Bring the ends of the dough together to make a point, then carefully fold the edges in by approximately 1 cm so they just barely overlap the filling. To secure the ends in place, they may have to be slightly curved and forced down.

After assembling the four pide, cover the dough with an egg mixture. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the dough is golden brown. Serve hot. Any leftovers can be consumed cold as well.
