Mevlana Pide

(Mevlana Pidesi - Konya)

<br />Mevlana Pide
Bread or Pizza Dough

250 gr lean ground beef
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 medium tomato, cut in small pieces
1 cubanelle pepper, discard the seeds, cut in small pieces
Handful parsley, chopped

Feta cheese, crumbled
Turkish Kashar cheese or Mozzarella cheese, grated

Glaze: 1 tbsp yogurt mixed with 2 tbsp water

Break the dough in a little bit larger than egg size pieces. Use your hands to flatten and then use a roller give a long oval shape each one. Place the mixed filling ingredients all over the tops equally. Then sprinkle some feta and mozzarella cheese over the tops. Fold the long sides towards the inside, then twist the ends to give a boat shape.

Place the parchment paper on an oven tray, then arrange the dough on top. Brush some yogurt mixture along the edges.

Preheat the oven to 500 F (250 C). Place the tray on the middle rack and bake for about 15 minutes. Immediately brush butter or olive oil on the edges.

Serve with parsley, red or white onion slices, red pepper flakes, sumac or lemon wedges.

This recipe is fantastic, but I often have trouble folding them (the sides fall back down whilst cooking). Do you have a video which demonstrates how to fold them?
