Pide: Turkish Flatbread

When I first started thinking about Turkish cuisine, my mind went straight to Turkish Delight. That of course led to thinking about Edmund from C.S Lewis’ The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe. I thought about making some, but I’ve had some before, and just didn’t care for it.

So I did some more research, and found a number of delightful looking recipes. I decided to start with Ayran. It’s a slightly salted yogurt drink, that although sounds weird – had great comments on being a refreshing drink.

Personally, I did not like it at all. I ended up dumping the whole thing, because it was just too much salt and sour. I may try it again with regular yogurt instead of the greek…but most likely not. 
So the search continued, and I finally settled on Pide; a Turkish Flatbread. Pretty similar to fry bread, but instead it’s baked in the oven. I love seeing those bubbled pop up on flat breads – they’re like little pockets of joy. 

I followed the recipe from Food.com, and it turned out wonderful! I’ve set most aside for our Potato Soup Dinner tonight, but I also enjoyed some with 2 of the littles as soon as it came out of the oven.

We did make one change, and that was brushing the Olive Oil on top. The original recipe called for Olive Oil, but we switched half of them out for some European Dipping Oil from WildTree.

I found so many other Turkish treats I want to try this month. Things like kemplasha, muska boregi, and cezerye.
