Traditional style tableside preparation of Gözleme in a restaurant near Antalya

Gözleme is a savoury pastry typical of traditional Turkish cuisine. It is made of hand-rolled dough leaves (yufka in Turkish) that are lightly brushed with butter and eggs, filled with various toppings, sealed, and cooked over a griddle called a sac.

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. It can be compared to a pasty or a crepe as a sort of hot savoury fast food.

Fillings for gözleme are numerous and vary by region and personal preference, and include a variety of meats like ground beef (kıymalı), spicy sausage (sucuk) or cured beef (pastırma); vegetables such as spinach, zucchini, eggplant, leek, chard, and various peppers, with onion, scallion, shallot, and garlic for added flavour; mushrooms, including porcino, chanterelle, and even truffle; potatoes; cheeses (peynirli means "with cheese") such as çökelek, Turkish white cheese, lavaş, or kaşar; eggs; and seasonal herbs (parsley) and spices.
