Turkish Pizza - Roll with Plenty of Vegetables

I was amazed with the Turkish pizza that my Turkish friend made for me. This is a pizza with a lot of vegetables rolled up in a lavash Turkish tortilla.

Ingredients: Makes 3 rolled pizzas

All-purpose flour
100 g
Olive oil
1 teaspoon
2 pinches
Hot water
55 ml
Tomato sauce with ground meat:
Ground meat
50 g

1/2 teaspoon
A. Water
200 ml
A. Tomato paste
1 tablespoon
A. Ketchup
1 tablespoon
A. Salt
3/8 teaspoon
A. Parsley (finely chopped)
1 tablespoon
Yogurt sauce
50 g
1/8 teaspoon
Parsley (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon
Filling of your choice
Tomato, bell pepper, fresh parsley, lettuce, and onion
as desired


1. To make the dough. Add the all-purpose flour, olive oil, and salt in a bowl. Pour the boiling water into it.
2. Stir it with a rubber spatula. Once it's cool enough to handle with your hands, bring the dough together and knead it on a working surface.
3. Once the dough becomes smooth, wrap it with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes at room temperature.
4. Make the tomato sauce. Mince the onion and carrot, heat the olive oil in a skillet and sauté until transparent. Add the ground beef into the skillet.
5. Once the ground meat has cooked through, add the "A" ingredients. Simmer until almost all the liquid evaporates.
6. Combine the ingredients to make the yogurt sauce.
7. Divide the dough into 3 equal pieces, and roll them out as thin as possible while dusting the working surface.
8. Spread the tomato sauce onto the dough leaving the edge free. Bake in the 250℃ oven. Please be careful not to overcook them. Only a few minutes is enough.
9. Cut the tomato and bell pepper into bite-sized pieces. Julienne the lettuce. Slice the onion and soak in a bowl of water.
10. Top the dough with the vegetables, and pour the yogurt sauce on top. Roll it up as you would roll sushi and it is done.
11. You can enjoy many different flavors by switching the vegetables that you are using.
12. I recommend using a lot of yogurt sauce.
13. My Turkish friend's homemade pizza had red cabbage in it. It was beautiful.
