500g (3⅓ cups) all-purpose (plain) flour
1 teaspoon (7g/1 packet) dried yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
375ml (1½ cups) warm water
Olive oil to grease the bowl for rising
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
1 teaspoon nigella seeds
½ teaspoon sea salt flakes
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. First, make the dough for which, in a large mixing bowl, add the water salt, yeast and sugar. Mix lightly with a fork to get all the yeast in the water and allow to rest for about 10-12 minutes until the mixture begins to foam.
Then add the egg and mix to incorporate well. Then using a dough attachment, slowly mix in flour until a ball of dough forms. Transfer dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for a few minutes until the dough is smooth and not sticky. Place in a bowl and allow to rest
Once the dough has rested and risen to about double its size, cut the dough into 4 equal portions, rolling each into a ball.
Use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll out one of the dough balls to about a 9 inch long oval and about an 1/8 inch thick (not too thin). Use your hands to shape it to a long oval shape, crimping the ends. Then gently place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Brush egg wash over the border and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. Use a small spoon to drizzle a bit of egg mixture over the meat mixture. Bake at 425 degrees F for about 15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Brush the border with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. Bake cheese pide for 6-7 minutes first, then remove from the oven and use the back of a spoon to make a small well in the center. Add your egg and place back in the oven and continue cooking for another 9-11 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and egg is cooked. When done, allow to cool slightly before cutting. Garnish with extra chopped parsley and a drizzle of olive oil.
