I visited my friend's place, and I had small bread making class there.
And I made Turkish bread. It is also called Turkish ''pide''. I was wondering what is ''pide''.
Is it word for bread in Turkish? No, bread is ''ekmek''.
I found it out, ''pide'' means ''pizza'' !!!!! It sounds similar word. Now, it is connected.
Turkish pide is traditionally cooked in hot cray ovens. It makes crispy crust and chewy crumb.
But of course, it is rarely to be in home kitchen. Use oven with high temperature, instead of the cray oven.
