Pide Bread

This vegan Pide Bread is topped with black and white sesame seeds. Great to fill it with Falafel or to eat with delicious hummus. So soft!

Pide Bread
I’ve always enjoyed Pide Bread from Turkish Markets, but those are often glazed with egg white therefore I made my own vegan version! This Pide Bread is something I make very often, because it’s so versatile. It’s a great bread for hummus, to fill it with fresh falafel or enjoy it with some vegan gyros. Either way it’s super soft and so good!

Hi Sara! Thank you so much! I actually haven't tried it with gluten-free flours yet. If you do give it a try, I guess a gluten-free all-purpose flour mix would work best.. but I'm terrible with gluten-free baking :D Let me know how it goes if you try it! Best, Bianca

Thank you, Laura, for your comment! It's really easy to make. Sometimes I add in olives and take it to bbq-parties. :D
