For those who were interested here are the links to the recipes for the 3 pides I made

You will notice that this recipe states that it's untested. I made a few adjustments to mine, they work for me. 

  1. I dissolve the yeast in the 1/4 cup of water and allow it to sit for ten minutes, then add remaining water, sugar and salt. 
  2. I add this to only 4 cups of flour (not the recommended 6, I found it too dry and 4 still makes a huge amount). 
  3. I do this in a metal mixing bowl, cover with glad wrap and add it to my oven which I warmed. I do this because the first time I tried this recipe it was a cold day, and now I continue to do it this way because it's faster and I'm too lazy to wait.  
  4. Continue to follow as per recipe. 

  1. I made the same dough as in recipe 1 (because it works for me and I don't like to deviate) and added the spices that this recipe recommends. 
  2. I didn't make the base sauce. (Couldn't be bothered, if you do and it's gorgeous pls tell me)
  3. I use marinated artichokes from a jar, instead of the boiling with lemon juice.

Lamb, Pumpkin and Feta Pide
(I wanted more than 2 different pides, so I made this one up at the last minute. Strangely enough everyone commented that it was the nicest.)
  1. I used the same spiced pide dough as I had for the chicken pide
  2. Coated cubes of pumpkin in some oil, cinnamon & nutmeg and then roasted till soft
  3. Brown some slices of lamb in a pan
  4. Thinly slice some Spanish onion
  5. Crumble some feta
  6. Pop it all on top of the prepared dough and bake

Thanks for sharing the recipes and for stopping by the other day :-). The pides are definitely on my "must try list" and I promise I'll let you know how they turned out. Will remember your changes, too. Take care - maks :-).
