step 1

Mix together the lukewarm water, yeast, and sugar in a small bowl until everything is evenly combined. Leave it to activate for 10 minutes before using it.

step 2

Place the activated yeast, flour, melted butter, and salt into a stand mixer and mix on low speed for 5-6 minutes to form the dough.

step 3

Coat a medium bowl with one tablespoon of olive oil and place the dough in it, covering it with a kitchen towel for an hour to expand.

step 4

For the perfectly portioned dough, begin by lightly dusting a flat surface with flour. Then, shape the dough into 10 individual pieces for baking or serving.

step 5

Generously sprinkle more flour and mold the dough with your hands before using a rolling pin to form it into a rectangular shape.

step 6

Carefully begin to curl the edges of your dough inward, pinching them together to form a boat-like shape.

step 7

Place the pizza boats (Peinirli) onto a parchment-lined baking tray and fill them with your desired toppings such as cheese, ham peppers, and tomatoes.

step 8

Enhance each one with a hint of oregano and brush the sides lightly with olive oil.

step 9

Bake them in a preheated oven at 200ºC (392ºF) for about 15 minutes or until they reach a delectable golden hue.
