Pide is a baked Turkish flat bread that is stuffed with a variety of toppings, for example cheese, spiced meat or vegetables. Traditionally, this savory dish of middle eastern origin is baked at a high temperature in a wood-fired oven.

For this recipe I used Schär Bread Mix B but you could also use another gluten-free flour blend.
