Dough recipe for peinirli and pizza


  • 500g all-purpose flour 
  • 25g fresh yeast
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil 
  • 300 ml (approximaltely) lukewarm water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • a pinch of sugar



  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in a little lukewarm water. Add 1 tbsp flour and mix lightly. Cover and leave to rest for 30 minutes, in a warm place.

  2. Sift the rest of the flour together with the salt and sugar. Make a hole in the middle, and place the yeast mixture in it. Add the olive oil, a little water, and begin pushing the flour from the sides towards the centre.

  3. Knead, taking the flour slowly and adding water as needed until you have an elastick dough that does not stick to your hands. 

  4. Make 1-2 balls with the dough, and place them in a bowl, after you have added flour to their surface. Cut two lines into each ball, in the shape of a cross. Cover with a clean cotton cloth and leave in a warm place until doubled in size. You can then make pizza bases or peinirli in any size or shape you like.
