Meat Pies – Lahmacun

Meat Pies- Lahmacun

Meat pies or lahmacun as they are called in Turkish are my absolutely my favourite kind of pie! There are two versions you can bake them in the oven or cook top with a frying pan and lid, both ways are delicious, the one on the stove top uses a flat bread recipe, this one that I am sharing is with dough that is baked in the oven.

Pizza Pockets

This one was filled with mushrooms, my daughter Dina and I love mushroom pizza:)

This is a great way for the kids to enjoy pizza at school! My kids don’t like when I send them pizza as the cheese gets stuck to the foil and the toppings fall off….this is the perfect solution for that problem! Sorry I don’t have better pictures to share, made these in the early morning, had to get lunch ready and off to school;) Continue reading “Pizza Pockets” »

Soguk and Cheese Buns

Cheese and Soguk Buns

Made these the other day with the same pogaca dough recipe, I made some with feta and parsley, and the rest I stuffed with soguk and Spanish cheese you can use mozzarella if that is what you have. I also made a dipping sauce for the kids with some diced tomatoes that I had left in the fridge. It was so simple to make and tasted great!  Continue reading “Soguk and Cheese Buns” »

Veggie and Cheese Pide

Since the bread is already baked, all you have to do is leave them in the oven till the cheese melts and the edges get crusty

I love the combination of cheese and veggie in this pide! Its even better with roasted red peppers! You can make it with a variety of veggies, sometimes I add mushrooms and olives to the mix! Any veggie will do, the more the merrier! You can also make this with store bought flat bread, I get mine from a Middle Eastern Bakery, they work out perfect!  Continue reading “Veggie and Cheese Pide” »

Potato Pizza

My mom would buy potato pizza at our local Italian bakery many years ago….and we thought why not try making it ourselves! We know what flavour we were looking for and it seemed easy enough to make at home. So this is our version of the potato pizza and honestly it tastes the same and even better!

Broccoli Pizza

Broccoli Pizza

My daughter Dina loves this pizza! We like to stuff the crust with mozzarella and butter the edges and sprinkle garlic salt, makes for a yummy garlic bread crust!

I like to blanch my broccoli first, I have never made it any other way, if you make it without blanching do let me know how it turned out.
