“This is a recipe for "pyzy" which are balls of dough, which my mom serves with ghoulash. This is my dad's all-time favourite dinner, so my mom finally perfected a recipe for the bread-machine so she wouldn't have to keep doing them by hand!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add all ingredients in the order recommended by your bread machine.
  2. Most machines will say to add the liquid first, then the dry ingredients. If your bread machine has a pre-heat feature (to ensure that all the ingredients are the same temperature) then make sure the yeast is added onto the very top of the flour - I like to make a well in the top of the flour pile - so that it isn't touching the water or salt.
  3. Set the machine to the "dough" cycle.
  4. When it's ready, let the dough rest for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Shape dough into balls and leave to rise in a warm oven for 30 minute, or until double in size.
  6. Steam balls in a steamer (standard size fits two balls per plastic bowl) for about 7 minutes each.
  7. If needed, you can place the pyzy in a bowl in a low heat oven to keep warm as you finish up the rest.
