Pizza Filled Pastry

Pizza Filled Pastry


  • 2 cups warm milk
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 packet (7g) active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 egg whites (keep the yolks for brushing on top)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • All-purpose flour (add gradually until the dough reaches the right consistency)
  • For the filling:
    • Sucuk (Turkish sausage)
    • Kaşar cheese (or any melting cheese of your choice)
    • Bell peppers
    • Olives
    • Tomatoes (customize according to your taste)


  1. In a large bowl, mix the warm milk, sugar, and active dry yeast. Dissolve the yeast by gently stirring with your hand (the warmth of your hand helps activate the yeast).
  2. Add vegetable oil, salt, egg whites, and flour gradually to the mixture. Knead the dough well. I used approximately 7 cups of flour (200ml measuring cup). However, make sure to add the flour gradually until the dough reaches the right consistency.
  3. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rise for about 40 minutes.
  4. Divide the risen dough into smaller pieces and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Adjust the number of pieces according to the size of your baking sheet. You will have about 24-25 pieces of dough.
  5. Cover the dough pieces with a cloth and let them rise for another 10 minutes.
  6. Press the center of each piece with a glass or your hand to create a well. Shape the dough gently.
  7. Place your desired pizza fillings (such as sucuk, kaşar cheese, bell peppers, olives, and tomatoes) into the wells of the dough.
  8. Brush the top of each dough with the reserved egg yolks.
  9. Preheat your oven to 190°C (375°F) and bake the pizza poğaça until they turn golden brown.
  10. Serve your delicious Pizza Poğaça while they are still warm.

Enjoy your tasty Pizza Stuffed Buns!
