Cheese and Tomato Pide

Cheese and Tomato Pide

We love our pides! I have a variety of recipes for them on the blog, this one is simply made with tomatoes, cheese and peppers.

You can use what ever pepper you have on hand, you can also just make it with cheese. For this pide you will need Spanish or Chicago cheese found at Middle Eastern or Mediterranean stores, if you can’t get your hands on it you can use mozzarella or a white cheese that is squeaky and salty, that is the best way to describe it.  Continue reading “Cheese and Tomato Pide” »
