Traditional style tableside preparation of Gözleme in a restaurant near Antalya
Gözleme is a savoury traditional Turkish pastry dish, made of hand-rolled dough that is lightly brushed with butter and eggs, filled with various toppings, sealed, and cooked over a griddle.
The name derives from the Turkish word göz meaning "compartment", in reference to the pocket of dough in which the various toppings are sealed and cooked. Traditionally, this is done on a saç griddle.
Toppings for gözleme are numerous and vary by region, and include a variety of meats (minced beef, chopped lamb, seafood), vegetables (spinach, zucchini, eggplant), mushrooms (porcino, chanterelle, truffle), tubers (potatoes, yams, cassava, radish), cheeses (feta, Turkish white cheese, lavaş, kaşar, kaşkaval), as well as eggs, and seasonal herbs and spices.
