Divide the dough into 3 parts. Roll out a portion of the dough into a circle, spread grated cheese (150 g) in the center. Lift the edges of the dough and gather them in the center.

Flip the dough pouch seam-side down and roll it out into a circle again. There will be air inside the bread, and you can release it by puncturing the Khachapuri in several places. Brush the bread with beaten egg yolk.

Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Transfer Khachapuri to a baking sheet and generously sprinkle with cheese. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, then increase the oven temperature to the maximum and bake until golden brown (approximately 5 minutes).
