Turkish bread — Known as pide in Instanbul, we've adopted it as a daily bread. Now, learn to love it even more for its versatility.

Preparation Time 10 minutes
Cooking Time 25 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

2 tsp olive oil
1 brown onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
250g lamb mince
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground paprika
1/2 bunch English spinach, trimmed, finely shredded
2 tbs toasted pine nuts
1 long Turkish bread
1 cup (100g) coarsely grated mozzarella
100g feta, coarsely crumbled
2 ripe tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup small mint leaves
Natural yoghurt and lemon wedges, to serve


Preheat oven to 200°C. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion softens. Add the lamb and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 2-3 minutes or until lamb changes colour. Add the cumin, coriander, cinnamon and paprika and cook for 1 minute or until aromatic. Remove from heat. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Add the spinach and pine nuts to the lamb mixture and gently toss to combine. Place the Turkish bread on an oven tray. Sprinkle evenly with the mozzarella and spoon over the lamb mixture. Sprinkle with feta. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until heated through.

Meanwhile, combine the tomato, onion and mint in a small bowl. Cut pizza into slices and spoon over the tomato mixture. Top with yoghurt and serve immediately, with lemon wedges, if desired.
