Turkish Bread Recipe

Turkish bread is a delicious and versatile bread that is perfect for sandwiches, dipping in hummus, or simply enjoying on its own. Here’s how to make it:


1 tablespoon active dry yeast

2 cups warm water

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

1/4 cup olive oil

6 cups all-purpose flour

1 egg, beaten

Sesame seeds (optional)


In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Add salt, sugar, and olive oil and mix well.

Gradually add the flour, stirring until a soft and sticky dough forms.

Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 10-15 minutes until smooth and elastic.

Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp towel and let it rise in a warm place for about an hour, or until doubled in size.

Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).

Punch down the dough and divide it into two equal pieces. Shape each piece into a round or oval shape and place them on a greased baking sheet.

Brush the tops of the loaves with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving.

This Turkish bread recipe yields two large loaves of bread that are perfect for sharing with friends and family. The combination of olive oil and sesame seeds gives the bread a nutty and delicious flavor. Serve it warm with your favorite dips, or use it to make a delicious sandwich. Enjoy!
