Greek Pernili with a modern twist


This is such a great food for parties and for friends coming over,because it can be prepared in quantity.Its a fun alternative for pizza.

You need:
For the dough:

500 gr soft flour
4 tablespoons butter
250 ml water
3 tablespoons white vinegar or white whine
1 pck active dry yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
3 teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons olive oil

For the filling
150 gr minced beef
250 gr semi hard cheese (if you can find Greek cheese that would be perfect)
150 gr mozzarella cheese
1 onion sliced
some pickled bell pepper (red)
1 egg
pepper,salt,oregano,garlic powder

Mix the ingredients all together and make a nice dough out of them until it has a pizza dough-like texture.If the dough is too sticky,add some more flour.If the dough is to hard and you can't kneed it,add some olive oil and water.
Cover the dough and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour.

Fry the minced beef in some olive oil and season it with pepper,salt,oregano and garlic powder.
Add the sliced onion and the sliced bell pepper in a bowl and slightly sprinkle them with a half teaspoon of sugar.
Grate the cheese.
Beat the egg with 2 tablespoons of water and season it with pepper and salt.

After the dough has risen take a ball of dough that has the size of a fist and turn it into an oval shape.The dough should be about a finger thick.
Brush the oval pernili with your egg wash.

Now you can get creative.Put the ingredients for the filling on the oval pernili.You can add bacon or spinach too.The most important ingredient is the cheese here,so use plenty of it :D

When you are done creating your own pernili,take the edges of the oval pernili and twist them a bit so the cheese won't run away during baking.

Brush the outsides with your egg wash and put them on an oven tray.
Bake at 200 degree Celsius until they are golden brown.

I made the mistake to overfill my pernili so they kind of broke during the baking process.*bummer*

The classical old fashioned Greek pernili are filled with semi hard cheese,mince and butter.They are usually baked in a stone oven,which gives them this rustic character they have.
