Bazlama: The Turkish Bread to Bake in the Pan in Minutes!

By Vitia

Bazlama is a flat, thin bread, commonly prepared in Turkey and surrounding regions. It is made from wheat flour, yeast, water, and salt and is usually baked on a hot griddle for a soft, crispy loaf on the outside. Bazlama is often served warm and can be used to wrap ingredients for a sandwich, or dipped in yogurt or olive oil for a delicious meal.
