  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp dry yeast OR
  • cubes of fresh yeast
  • 150 ml milk or yogurt
  • 3 ½ tbsp oil or melted butter
  • 1 full teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 350 gr cheese (combine cheddar, emmental, mozzarella, cottage cheese)
  • some pepper
  • 25 ml water (optional)
  • 1 egg beaten


  • If you use dry yeast, combine it with all dry ingredients first. In other bowl, combine all wet ingredients and finally mix everything into one bowl.
  • If you use fresh yeast, put the cube of yeast into a warm milk and let it melt. After 10 minutes, some foam should appear.
  • Add other ingredients into the bowl and knead the mixture well.
  • When you are done with kneading, cover the dough with a cloth and leave it to rest at the room temperature.
  • Put some oil on your hands and knead the dough again after 30 minutes. Wait for the dough to rise. Depending on how much your dough rises, you can make 2 or 3 dough balls. Use a knife to easily cut the dough and split it in three equal parts.
  • After you put some flour on the working surface, place one dough ball and roll it until it becomes a disk. Put the filling mixture on the centre but make sure you have equal amount of filling for each disk.
  • Stretch the dough and fold the edges to close the disk and cover all the filling. Roll it a bit more to make a flatbread but be gentle, so the cheese filling doesn’t come out.
  • When you prepare all the discs, brush them with beaten egg. Bake khachapuri in the oven for about 25 minutes or until it is golden, at 225 degrees.
