Dough – I used regular pizza dough

  • 1/2 lb / 8 oz thawed dough for 1 loaf


  • 1 cup mixed finely chopped veggies (onions, bell peppers, carrots, zucchini etc. Squeeze as much water out of all veggies)
  • 23 teaspoons mixed herbs (oregano, pepper, thyme, parsley etc)
  • 1/4 cup grated or torn pieces of Mozarella Cheese (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Melted Butter
  • 2 cloves of minced Garlic
  • 1 Chilli, finely chopped (or 1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes)
  • 1 teaspoon Ketchup / Any Pesto


  • Melted Butter (to brush on the loaf)


  1. Start off with some all purpose pizza dough.
  2. On a floured surface roll it out to a 1/2 inch thick elongated disk (almost rectangular)
  3. Brush the rolled out disk with some melted butter, and sprinkle minced garlic and green chilli. Also add some pesto / ketchup (not too much or it’ll get soggy)
  4. Spread the finely chopped veggies on the disk leaving about 1/2 an inch on all sides. Add pieces of cheese (optional) and sprinkle herbs generously
  5. Start rolling from side closest to you and roll into a tight roll / loaf. Seal the edges or cut the excess dough on the edges. Place on a greased baking sheet
  6. (Preheat oven to 200 C)
  7. Let it rest & rise for 20 minutes in a warm spot.
  8. With a knife, make shallow cuts across the loaf. Brush the loaf with melted butter & bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes of until golden brown.
  9. Serve warm with favorite condiment.
