Anyone love Khachapuri as much as I do? It's just pizza dough, Feta and Mozzarella, an egg and 2 tabs of butter. The sides are filled with the cheeses also.
Khachapuri is a Georgian dish and is supposed to represent life on the sea....a boat and sunshine. When it is cooked, you simply tear off an end piece and use it to mix all the cheeses, egg and butter and eat. Then you use the cheese filled sides and continue eating. Only at the end do you need a fork. This recipe makes 2 boats. I never have patience for pizza dough so I go to my local bakery and buy a pound of pizza dough. One pound will make 2 boats.
Recipe makes two Khachapuri's.
One Pound of Pizza Dough
1 Cup of Mozzarella, diced
1 Cup Feta, crumbled
4 Tabs of butter
Cut the dough in half and roll out into a triangle. Use half Mozzarella and half feta and put the cheese on the long sides and then roll the sides up.
Now twist the two end and roll under. Fill the boat with a combo of the two cheeses. Don't overload it....just a normal amount. Lift it onto your cooking pan. I use a cast iron griddle for mine and just lightly rub a little olive oil on the pan.
Bake on 350 just until it starts turning brown, maybe 20 minutes. Remove from oven and using a spoon, create a little well in the middle and drop an egg in. Then put it back in the oven for about 7 minutes. Remove from oven and take 2 big pats of butter and sink one on each side.
Then just pull of one of the sides, mix up the egg and cheeses and start eating!
