Bazlama is a single layered, flat, circular and leavened bread with a creamish yellow colour. It is similar in taste to English muffins. It has an average thickness of 2 cm and diameters ranging from 10 to 25 cm.
This popular flatbread is made from wheat flour, water, table salt, and yeast. After mixing and two to three hours fermentation, 200- to 250-gram pieces of dough are divided, rounded, sheeted to a desired thickness and baked on a hot plate. During baking, the bread is turned over to bake the other side. After baking, it is generally consumed fresh. Shelf life of bazlama varies from several hours to a few days, depending on storage conditions. This is a Turkish bread type.
