Pide is a common Turkish food. You can find many pide restaurants in Turkey and it is considered as a fast-food, but it is more natural than any other fast-food types like hamburger or cheeseburger etc. You may consider pide as a pizza. The principle is the same: a dough and some ingredients on it. Bake the dough with these ingredients on it and holala! Your pide (or pizza) is ready to serve! By the way, pide and pizza are from the same language origin. They are Greek words that means rolled bread, and it comes from an Aramic root. So, we can consider both pizza and pita as a universal food.

Add fresh yeast and granulated sugar into the milk and stir until they melt. After that, set the mix aside for 5 minutes.
Take flour and salt into a pot and make a small pit on it. Pour the mix above, egg and melted butter onto the pit on the flour.
Start kneading the dough starting from the middle. Knead until you get a medium-soft dugh. Then cover the pot and set the dough aside for an hour.
When it swells, divide the dough into 10 equal pieces. Roll them on your palm and spread by using a rolling pin (please look at the photos above).
Place cheese onto spreaded doughs. Then fold and press their edges just like shown on the photo. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200 °C (392 °F).
Take all the pieces to the oven tray with greased paper on it. Egg brush all of them and then place sujuk slices.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
