Turkish Bread

This is the fluffy soft bread as opposed to the crunchy pita style.

You can see it being made in our Mixed Meze Plate Video.

250 g bread flour
2 teaspoons superfine sugar
1 teaspoon salt
7 g fast active dried yeast
200 ml lukewarm water
olive oil
sesame seeds for sprinkling

In large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center and add the yeast, then the water, and stir with a wooden spoon. You will have a very wet, shaggy mixture. Cover with cling film and leave to prove for one hour.
Remove dough from bowl onto heavily floured work surface. Form into round flat circle about 3cm high. Place on olive oil rubbed baking sheet. Sprinkle with flour, cover with clean kitchen towel, and allow to prove another 45 minutes.
In the meantime preheat oven to 250 C/ 480 F.
When dough is ready gently indent with fingertips, leaving a 3 cm edge. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes.

Great with Hummus.
