  • Instructions

    1-Prepare the Dough: Follow the same steps as in the basic Trabzon Pidesi recipe for preparing the dough. Allow it to rise until doubled in size.

  • 2-Cook the Filling: While the dough is rising, heat a pan over medium heat. Add the minced meat, cooking until browned. Add onions, bell pepper, grated tomatoes, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook until the vegetables are soft and the mixture is well-combined. Stir in chopped parsley and set aside to cool.

  • 3-Shaping and Filling: Preheat your oven to 200°C (390°F). Divide the risen dough into four parts. Roll each into an oval shape, about 5mm thick. Spread the meat mixture evenly over each piece, leaving a border around the edges.

  • 4-Form the Pides: Fold the edges over the filling, pinching at the ends to create a boat shape, ensuring the filling is still visible in the center.

  • 5-Baking: Place the pides on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden and the meat is sizzling.

  • 6-Serving: Serve your Kıymalı Trabzon Pidesi hot, garnished with a sprinkle of fresh parsley or a side of yogurt.

  • Conclusion

    Kıymalı Trabzon Pidesi is a true representation of Turkish flavors and textures. It’s an excellent way to spice up your meal times and bring a taste of the Black Sea region to your table. Each bite offers a perfect balance of soft bread and rich, flavorful meat - a combination that's sure to please any palate.

Smart Tips

  • Meat Choices: You can use a mixture of beef and lamb for a richer flavor. Ensure the meat is finely minced for a smoother filling.

  • Spice Variations: Feel free to add spices like cumin, coriander, or a hint of cinnamon to give an additional depth to the meat filling.

  • Dough Consistency: Ensure your dough is neither too sticky nor too dry. The right consistency will make shaping the pides easier.

  • Serving Suggestion: Serve with a side of Ayran (a Turkish yogurt drink) or a simple salad to balance the richness of the pide.

  • Leftovers: If you have leftover filling, use it as a base for pasta sauces or as a topping for homemade pizzas.
