Turkish Pide Recipe

Ingredients for Homemade Turkish Pide

  • 510 gm flour

  • 1 1/2 tbs]instant yeast

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 210 ml lukewarm water

  • 25 gm olive oil

  • 1/4 cup extra of olive oil to brush the pides

  • 500 g minced beef not lean

  • 1 onion diced

  • 3 cloves garlic grated

  • 1/2 green capsicum diced

  • 1/2 red capsicum diced

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 2 tsp smokey paprika

  • 2 tsp ground cumin

  • 1 bunch parsley chopped half for serving


Dough Combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt then add the oil and warm water.

  • Use your hands to combine the dough and kneed the mixture to for five minutes to activate the gluten.

  • When you have a soft shine dough cover the bowl with a tea towel and place the bowl in a warm spot. A good place is near a sunlit window.

  • After an hour the dough should be ready for use. Check that it has increased in size. If not place it in a warmer environment and leave it a little longer.


  • Add the mince meat, onion and garlic to a frying pan, I don't use oil because I find there is enough in the meat.

  • Fry off these ingredients. The mixture will look quite wet for a while but as you continue to fry the it will eventually be cooked off.

  • When the moisture starts to reduce add the diced capsicum and spices.

  • continue to cook the beef filling for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally.

  • When there is very little moisture left remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool slightly.

  • Add half of the chopped parsley to the pan.


  • Preheat oven at 180C.

  • Prepare two large baking sheets with baking paper.

  • Dust the bench top with a little flour.

  • Divide the dough into about 8 equal balls.

  • Roll each of the balls out into a thin oval shape.

  • Place each of the 8 dough basis on the baking tray.

  • Add the beef filling to the dough leaving a 1 1/2 cm boarder around the outside.

  • Fold the border over the filling and pinch the top and bottom ends together.

  • Repeat the same steps until all the dough has the Pide filling.

  • Brush each pide with the olive oil.

  • Bake the Pide for about 15 - 20mins at 180C or until golden.
