  • 0:30 Prep
  • 0:40 Cook
  • 4 Servings

Ingredients

  • 375g (2 1/2 cups) plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons (7g/1 sachet) dried yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 250ml (1 cup) lukewarm water
  • Olive oil, to grease
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked

Filling

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Middle Eastern spice mix

  • 1 large bunch English spinach, stems trimmed, washed, dried, finely shredded
  • 150g Greek feta, crumbled
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked

Method

  • 1
    Combine the flour, yeast and salt in a bowl. Add water and mix until a soft dough forms, adding 1-2 tablespoons extra water if necessary. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Brush a large bowl with oil to lightly grease. Place the dough in the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm, draught-free place for 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in size.

    Meanwhile, to make the filling, heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 minutes or until the onion softens. Add the spice mix and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic. Add the mince and increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 5 minutes or until mince changes colour. Add the spinach and cook, tossing, for 1 minute or until the spinach just wilts. Stir in the feta. Set aside to cool completely. Add the egg and stir until well combined.

    Punch down the centre of the dough with your fist. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Divide into 4 equal portions. Roll out 1 portion on a lightly floured surface to make an oval shape about 16cm wide and 26cm long. Spoon one-quarter of the filling along the centre. Fold in the sides to enclose filling slightly, leaving an opening along the centre. Use your fingers to pinch dough together, about 5cm along each end of the pide, leaving the filling exposed in the centre. Place the pide on the lined tray. Repeat with the remaining dough portions and filling. Cover loosely with a clean tea towel and set aside for 30 minutes to prove.
