Turkish Flatbread with Sesame Seeds (Pide Ekmegi or Ramazan Pidesi)

This bread is often eaten during Ramadan, but is eaten during the rest of the year as well. In the UK, this particular loaf is thought of as Turkish bread, despite there being dozens of different types baked there. Try thinly slicing, then toasting it and using it to scoop up dips and meze dishes.

Great Turkish bread
November 1, 2016
I searched all over the internet for a pide recipe and decided on this one. What I changed: add 2 tablespoons of nonfat Greek yogurt, for added richness; 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal for extra flavor, color, and health; and doubled the amount of seeds. I used King Arthur Bread Flour and KA Unbleached All-Purpose flour in equal amounts and got a chewy, slightly puffy bread. You need a higher gluten flour here. I shaped it into long ovals on parchment, baking 2 breads to a half-sheet Also, I did not make this by hand as it was pretty sticky. I mixed it in my KitchenAid 7-quart mixer for a minute on low and then another 6 minutes on medium until it came away clean from the sides of the bowl. Easy. I baked it in a 475 degrees oven for 15 minutes, switching up the pans halfway through. They are beautiful breads.
Pros: Adaptable, Appearance, Easy, Impressive, Will Make Again

Great Bread reicpe even for beginners!
March 21, 2014
This is a beautiful and delicious bread that is a little crusty on the outside with a nice chew to the center. It is not hard to make at all and you can add different herbs to it also. I like it plain the best but my family likes it with a few herbs now and then. If there is one con and that is not an issue is the mixing by hand. I love this bread. It is cheaper to make, fresh and you will love it to. Even beginners can make this bread. It is well worth the time to make it. Just follow the directions to the letter, you will have fantastic bread that you will make repeatedly. I like it just as a snack with a glass of tea.
Pros: Easy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again, good for beginner, crusty outside delicious center
Cons: mixing by hand?
