Tuna Melt Khachapuri

It's a cheesy tuna sandwich with a tasty Georgian twist and an egg on top, of course.



  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 whole eggs for baking in the khachapuri


  • 1 cup dill havarti cheese (or other cheese of choice), roughly chopped or grated
  • 3 tablespoons canned chunk tuna, drained


  • 2 teaspoons za'atar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 egg, beaten for brushing


  1. In a medium bowl mix together the yeast, sugar, flour and salt. Add wet ingredients. Using your hands, knead until a smooth dough forms.
  2. Remove to a flat surface and knead for 5 minutes until springy and elastic. Transfer to a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel. Set in a warm place and let rise for an hour until doubled in size.
