Place dough on the counter and punch to release air. Then try to flatten the dough with your hands to fit to the tray (Use a 8-12 inch round tray or Pyrex). Then place it into the baking tray with baking paper and flatten it to fit the tray. Brush surface of the Turkish Pide Bread with egg wash and press all over it with your finger tips. Then sprinkle nigella seeds or sesame seeds on top.Cover it with a clean cloth and leave it for ½-1 hours to rise in a warm place (If you have time let it rest for 2 hours).

It is good to go with butter, honey-butter dip or spicy olive oil dipwhen warm.
