DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve the yeast in a large bowl.
  • Add wheat flour and one cup of all purpose flour, and stir.
  • Cover the mixture and put aside for 10 minutes, up to 3 hours.
  • Add oil and salt.
  • Slowly add the remaining flour until it is hard to stir.
  • Turn the dough over the slightly floured surface, and knead it for 6-8 minutes. The dough should not stick to your hands while you are kneading. If necessary add more flour.
  • Cover the dough with a plastic film and put it aside for 1.5-2 hours, until the dough doubles its initial size.
  • Prepare the fillings at another bowl. Just put all the ingredients and mix.
  • When the dough is ready, turn the dough over the slightly floured surface.
  • Slice the dough into 10 slices and make balls. Cover the pieces with a damp cloth.
  • Take the first piece and flat the dough into a circle (D=6-9 in.) with using a rolling pin.
  • Brush the surface with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle 2-3 tbsp stuffing onto the dough. Cover the sides, and shape it as a boat.
  • Brush the top with olive oil again.
  • Put the pide on preheated skillet and cook the bottom at medium temperature.
  • Once the bottom is cooked, transfer the pide to an oven dish and place it to the oven which is set to broil.
  • Cook the top until the surface turn to light brown-golden.
