  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sesame seeds or nigella seeds for topping (optional)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and active dry yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until the mixture becomes frothy.
  2. Add the salt and olive oil to the yeast mixture and stir well.
  3. Gradually add the flour to the mixture, kneading it until a soft and smooth dough forms. You may need to adjust the amount of flour slightly depending on the humidity of your kitchen.
  4. Once the dough comes together, transfer it to a lightly floured surface and continue kneading for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes elastic.
  5. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours or until it doubles in size.
  6. After the dough has risen, punch it down to release any air bubbles and divide it into equal-sized portions, depending on how big you want your bread to be.
  7. Shape each portion into a round ball and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving some space between each ball.
  8. Cover the dough balls with a clean kitchen towel and let them rise for another 30-45 minutes.
  9. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  10. If desired, gently brush the tops of the dough balls with water and sprinkle sesame seeds or nigella seeds on top for added flavor and texture.
  11. Bake the bread in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until they are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  12. Once baked, transfer the Turkish bread to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
  13. Enjoy your freshly baked Turkish bread warm with your favorite dips, spreads, or as an accompaniment to your favorite Turkish dishes. Afiyet olsun! (Enjoy your meal!)
