Pizza Börek


Börek is a very popular dish in Turkey. Its a pastry made with thin stretched phyllo dough, filled with different fillings like meat, cheese and many others. Here’s a recipe for a simple Pizza börek. Enjoy :)


For the dough
  • 3 + 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 egg
For the filling
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 tbs oregano
  • a pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 chopped garlic clove
  • 2 cups grated cheese
  • 1/4 pound sliced ham
  • 1 /4 pound cut mushrooms


Mix all the ingredients for the dough in a large bowl. Knead using your hands for about 5 minutes.  Let it rest in the fridge for about a half an hour. Meanwhile make the filling. In a smaller bowl, mix chopped garlic, tomato paste, salt, pepper and oregano. Cover and set aside. When the dough is ready, divide it in 3 pieces, stretch every piece over a slightly floured cloth. The dough must be square and very thin; about 1 mm.

Preheat the oven to 375 F. Spread the tomato paste mixture over the top of the dough, leaving about 1/2 inch edge on the outside. Arrange the ham slices and mushrooms over evenly. Roll up the dough; it’s easier if you lift the cloth, so it rolls up itself. Form  a circle and put it in an oiled baking pan. spread with oil. Repeat with the other 2 pieces of dough. When all 3 circular rolls are in the baking pan, grease them up with oil and bake for 40 minutes.

Serve hot
