VEGAN PIZZA BUREK (WITH homemade dough)


Traditional layered pie made of homemade dough


   This is delicious Balkan/Turkish old style dish that is nowadays still quite popular, and in this case – it’s made of only vegan ingredients. The proces of making requires a bit of skills (and preferably some experience). It can be made with different kinds of filling too such are vegan grated cheese combined with vegan yoghurt or vegan cooking cream, with vegan minced meat (soy tvp, etc.), or in the form of sweet burek pies made of grated apples or rcherries. All of those salty and sweet versions taste equally delicious.

Vegan version of a traditional kind of Balkan/Turkish layered pie
Cook Time 45 minutes
Course Breakfast, Main Course, Snack
Servings 8 servings


  • Mixer
  • Oven
  • 2 springforms, diameter 20 cm. (or just 1 springform for half amount of the ingredients - meaning for only 1 burek)


For the dough (for double portion which means 2 springforms):

  • 500 gr of wheat flour;
  • 300 ml of luke warm water;
  • a good pinch of salt;
  • 1 tbsp. of oil.

For the filling (for double portion):

  • 600 gr of vegan grated cheese (mozzarella style);
  • 350 ml of vegan cooking cream;
  • some oregano;
  • some salt;
  • 100 gr of grated tofu;
  • some ketchup;
  • 400 gr of drained marinated champignons.


  • oil.


Preparation of dough (for 2 round spring forms):

  • Put all ingredients into a bowl and mix with a mixer. You might add a bit more water or a bit less flour, and that depends on a quality of the flour. The dough should become smoth once it's mixed. Devide it into 8 balls (4 for each burek), press them and flatten them out to get discs, then let them sit in oil (on a large tray, or on well greased kitchen surface as in images) for 15 min. Oil is going to soften them out (they'll be therefore easy to streach). Follow the process described in images above.
  • Generously grease working surface with oil. Stretch out one by one pieces of dough over a greased surface and fill it with filling (following image description, above), then slice out thick edges of dough. You should grease the working surface all over again before you start streching out another disc of dough (each time). Use 4 discs for each burek.
  • Place burek inot a cake springform covered with a parchement paper and bake it for 40 min. (last 10 min covered with alu foil) at 230 degrees Celsius. Flip burek upside down and bake it additional 5 min. with a top heater on.
  • Let it cool down a bit. Take it out from the springform. Slice and serve it warm with vegan yoghurt.
