Pide Bread Recipe


• 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast

• 1 tsp sugar

• 1 cup warm water

• 3 cups all-purpose flour

• 1 tsp salt

• 1/4 cup olive oil

• 1 cup diced ham

• 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

• cherry tomato 

• 1/4 cup chopped red onion

• 1 tsp dried oregano

• basil leaves 


• In a bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until the mixture is frothy.

• In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture and olive oil. Mix until the dough comes together.

• Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until it's smooth and elastic.

• Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.

• Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

• Punch down the risen dough and divide it into two equal portions.

• Roll out each portion into an oval shape, about 1/4 inch thick.

• Transfer the rolled-out dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

• Sprinkle half of the ham, mozzarella cheese, bell peppers, red onion, and black olives over each oval, leaving a border around the edges.

• Fold the edges of the dough over the filling to create a boat-like shape.

• Beat the egg and brush it over the edges of the pide for a golden finish.

• Sprinkle dried oregano over the top of each pide.

• Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted.

• Let the pide cool slightly before slicing and serving.

Enjoy your homemade ham pide with its delicious blend of flavors and textures!
