Top Recipe for 6 Persons. All ingredients and tips for getting it right. Top chef Elif Oskan from the Zurich restaurant Gül reveals how this stuffed flatbread with cheese, green onions, parsley and egg is easy to make.



    1. Step 1

      Put all the ingredients, except the salt, in a bowl of a mixer and knead with the spiral dough hook at low speed for 8 minutes.
    2. Step 2

      Add the salt and knead again for 3 minutes at medium speed.
    3. Step 3

      Portion the dough into individual 90 g dough pieces and leave to rise, covered, at room temperature if possible or overnight in the refrigerator.
    4. Step 4

      Using a rolling pin, roll out each piece of dough lengthwise (in the shape of an oval) approx. 3 mm thin.
    5. Step 5

      Spread some of the cheese mixture on top with a spoon and pre-bake in a wood-fired oven (if available) or in an oven preheated to 225 °C (a pizza stone is an advantage here). Cook for around 5 minutes.
    6. Step 6

      For the last 3 to 5 minutes, take the pide out, place an organic egg in the middle and bake until done. The egg should still be runny at the end of the cooking time.
    7. Step 7

      Sprinkle some coarse salt on the egg and serve.
