For the Dough

  • 3 cups All purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tbsp Instant Yeast
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup warm water

For the Topping

  • 300 gr ground beef
  • 1 onion - medium size finely chopped
  • 1 green pointy pepper finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper finely chopped
  • 1 tomato (deseeded) diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon grounded black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp olive oil to brush the Pide


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C/ 350 F.

  2. First, combine the flour, instant yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl. Then pour olive oil and warm water. Combine the mix well until you reach a soft and smooth dough.

  3. Cover the bowl with moisturized kitchen towel and set a side for an hour. Its size will be double.

  4. While your dough is resting, prepare your filling. Heat olive oil in a wide pan and stir in the onions and peppers.

  5. Saute the onions and peppers for 3 minutes at medium heat, until they start to get soften. Stir in the tomatoes and continue for an additional 2 minutes. Add the salt and ground black pepper. Turn the heat off.

  6. Place the ground beef in a bowl and combine the cooked ingredients with the ground beef and them mix well. This is your topping for Pide.

  7. Once the dough rise, place the dough on a floured surfaced counter. Cut the dough into 18-20 equal size balls.

  8. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough balls into oval shapes of 25 cm x 50 cm with ½ cm thickness.

  9. Place baking paper in an oven tray and place oval shaped thin dough on it. (You can try to place 2 oval shape dough to 1 baking tray)

  10. Spread the filling evenly over the 2 oval shaped dough by leaving 1 cm at the edges as a border with no filling.

  11. Fold/Seal the sides of the dough to keep the filling in it. Repeat the same steps until you finish all dough balls.

  12. Beat an egg in a small cup and mix it with 1 tbsp. olive oil. Brush the edges/corners of dough with this mixture.

  13. Bake for 20 minutes, until the all Pides are golden brown color and crispy at the edges.

  14. Cut into slices and then serve.
