Quick Turkish pizza/ Pide with summer veg

Quick Turkish pizza/ Pide with summer veg & feta

We are big fans of pizzas and even have our own Happy Pear vegan pizzas for sale all around Ireland. So we loved the idea of making Pide; a delicious Turkish flatbread. Traditionally made with a yeast dough, we have adapted it to use a quick easy dough so this recipe only takes 25 mins from start to finish!

Takes 25 minutes

Serves 2


  • Dough;
  • 250 g self raising flour
  • Small pinch salt
  • 125 ml water
  • Base;
  • 4 tbsp Pesto of choice – we used our Happy Pear Sun-Dried Tomato pesto
  • 4 tbsp Tomato puree
  • Toppings;
  • Quick fire cashew feta;
  • 100 g cashew nuts
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice juice of 1 small lemon
  • 4 tbsp non dairy milk
  • Good Pinch of salt and black pepper
  • 100 g Asparagus
  • 1 small Courgette -150g
  • 50 g Peas
  • Mint & chilli oil;
  • 12 g mint
  • 1 small fresh chilli
  • 8 tbsp Olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


  • Method;
  • Preheat oven to 250 C Fan assisted
  • Boil the cashews for 10 mins. Drain and rinse well and set aside.
  • While the cashews are boiling make your dough; into a mixing bowl add the flour and water along with a small pinch of salt. Mix the flour, water and the salt together in a bowl and bring together to a rough dough. Transfer it to a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-10 minutes until it forms a nice smooth elastic dough, smooth to the touch. You could alternatively use a stand mixer with a dough hook for 4-5 minutes.
  • Peel the courgette into long thin ribbons using a wide peeler ; approx 16 – 20 slices. Leave asparagus whole, trimming stalk so they are about 10cm
  • Mix the pesto and tomato paste together
  • To make the cashew feta; add the cashews to a high speed blender along with the milk, lemon juice and ⅓ tsp of salt and blend till smooth, remove and set aside. rinse the blender, then make the mint and chili oil.
  • Divide the dough into 2 balls. Roll each dough into approx 30 x 20cm oval shape and transfer to two lightly oiled baking trays.
  • To assemble the pide;
  • Spread approx 4 Tbsp or half of the pesto tomato mixture over each dough, leaving 3cm uncovered all the way around.
  • Add 4-5 tsp of feta dotted over the pesto.
  • Toss the asparagus and courgette ribbons in 1 tbsp of oil and pinch of salt. Roll up 2 ribbons of courgette each,into little swirls.
  • Add the courgette rolls and asparagus over the feta covering the pesto and feta, keeping the asparagus lined up at an angle, making a nice pattern.
  • Fold back the uncovered dough all the way around, making a canoe shape, leaving the filling mostly uncovered. Pinch the pastry at both ends to keep it sealed during baking. Bake for 10 -12 mins until the dough is nice and golden. Rotate the trays once during cooking so it cooks evenly.
  • Serve with your favourite summer salad. Enjoy!
