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.
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” »
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” »
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!

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!

- 5 cups flour

- 1/2 cup olive oil to mix in while making dough
Take yeast, sugar and mix in with the water in a large bowl, add the flour and start forming into dough, knead until its firm yet soft takes a few minutes.
Drizzle olive oil to prevent stickiness and it makes dough soft. Let rise covered in room temp for 1 hour. Punch air out and its ready to use.
- Fresh tomato sauce
- 2 tomatoes

Roll dough with flour, place on a greased pan sprinkled with corn meal.

You can spread fresh tomato sauce on the bottom if desired then, top with freshly chopped basil and sliced mozzerella balls.
