Mini Turkish Pide Pizza
Boy have I got a great recipe for your today. The kids are going to love eating it, the mum's are going love making it and the dads will be happy getting this put in front of them for dinner. It's my Mini Turkish Pide Pizza's. The perfect mid-week meal to feed the whole family. I can attest to that. When I served this up for the family the other night it was a definite winner. The baby ate it with glee, the two other kids requested it for their lunch boxes the next day and hubby was impressed with the nights fare. So I was happy all round with the reaction from my latest recipe.
I will readily admit not all dinners go down so well in our house. The adults might thoroughly enjoy something but the kids pick it to bits and whine and complain about what's on offer. So when something goes down so well I make sure I add it to the menu plan for future reference and these Mini Turkish Pide Pizza's make the cut. Plus I have to share it with you guys because if something goes down so well with the family then it might just go down really well with yours. Depending on your families taste buds that is. I have kept this kid-friendly in the spice department. If you have a hankering for a little more kick than make sure you add some chilli to the mince filling if you don't need to worry about young taste buds.
My two ingredient dough recipe makes the perfect base for these pizza's but if you are wanting an even lazier option than just go with puff pastry as the base. Another time-saving tip is to make a double batch of the meat filling and portion and freeze it for a quick and easy meal on the fly when you just can't be bothered cooking but want something damn delicious. I find having something like this up my sleeve saves my butt on a Friday night when I just don't want to cook but don't want to spend money on takeout. I give myself high five's on nights like this for my pre-planning. We as a family don't eat a lot of takeout because we struggle to go out with the kids around bedtime (hello feral hour) or when we try we just don't enjoy the place we choose or struggle to find something that fits my food allergies (hello gluten and dairy intolerances) So we find that eating at home fits us better at this point in life rather than eating out a lot. That being said we have our favourite places we go and normally get the kids looked after to enjoy them in peace and quiet.
I hope this recipe inspires you to get in the kitchen and cook up a delish feast for your family with a handful of ingredients. You could go out to a Turkish restaurant and order something like this or you could whip your own Mini Turkish Pide Pizza's in the comfort of your own home - hello PJ's and Netflix! I know which one I would rather have when I am dead tired after a big week.
