We wager that pide has already been discovered by many people in major cities. Traditional toppings for the tiny Turkish pizzas include cheese, spinach and minced meat, as well as sucuk (garlic sausage). We’ve been wanting to try pide but haven’t come across a vegan version. since they are frequently not vegans.
- 1 pound pizza dough
- 1/2 cup vegan minced meat (e.g. soy-based or pea-based)
- 2 medium tomatoes, diced
- 1 small red onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).
- Roll out the pizza dough into a large oval shape, about 1/4 inch thick.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the vegan minced meat, diced tomatoes, red onion, garlic, parsley, mint, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- Spoon the mixture onto the center of the pizza dough, leaving about 1 inch of dough around the edges.
- Fold the edges of the dough up and over the filling to create a boat shape, pinching the ends to seal.
- Bake the pide for 15-20 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the filling is heated through.
- Slice and serve hot.
