  • Heat the oven to highest setting (about 230 to 250C). Cut the risen dough into 12 pieces and shape them round. Cover the ones you don’t use with a damp clean kitchen towel or freezer bag so they don’t get dry.
  • Roll out one piece in a lightly floured surface into a oblong shape that can fit to your baking try. Place then to the try that is lined with baking paper. Add generaously from the minced meat filling (about two full tbsp) on top leaving 1cm space in sides. Spread evenly with back of a spoon or your hand.
  • Fold the sides of the pides inside and press them well.
  • Pinch the ends and seal. Hold from the corners and strech a bit more as far as it can fit to your tray and place it back. Brush the sides with egg yolk and bake until sides and bottom has nice golden color.

Closed pide shape “kapalı pide / kır pidesi”

This shape is usually used for spinach, potato fillings. After rolling out the dough piece, place it from the filling leaving 2 cm from the sides. Fold the sides to the top and pinch all the way.
