In Turkey, Ekmek is a very common bread. It translates as boring, uninspired bread. It is usually served as a side dish. Here are a couple of Turkish Bread Recipes:


Flour, Salt, Water
Mix to the consistency of pizza dough.
Flatten roughly with your hands, then pound with the tips of your fingers until it is a little flatter, and very dimpled.
Cook at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes

Lavash (translates as Balloon Bread)

The base is ekmek, but you continue to flatten it until it is as thin as pizza dough.
Brush the top with a mixture of egg yolk and water
Sprinkle with Nigella Seeds

Lahmacun (Used for Turkish Pizza)

Again, using ekmek as the base, flatten even further and spread with thick tomato paste and spices, then add other desired toppings.
