1 whole wheat footlong bread (2”)
1 medium yellow capsicum
1 medium red capsicum
1 medium green capsicum
2 1/4 tsp olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
12 tomato slices
2 tbsp deseeded and sliced black olives
1 tsp dried oregano
salt to taste
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp grated mozzrella cheese

To Be Mixed Into A Marinade
1 1/2 tbsp vinegar
1/2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp powdered sugar

  1. Pierce the yellow capsicum with a fork, brush it using ¼ tsp of olive oil evenly over it and roast it over an open flame till it turns black from all the sides.
  2. Cool, wash it in cold water and remove the skin, stem and seeds and discard them. Cut the capsicum into thin slices and keep aside.

  6. Cut the footlong bread into 2 pieces from the centre and then cut each piece into 2 halves horizontally. You will get 4 bread halves of 6” each in all.
  7. Place all the 4 bread halves on a flat, dry surface and core the inner side of each halve so as to form a slight depression.
  8. Spread ¼th of the marinade evenly on each bread halve.
  9. Place a portion of the capsicum mixture in the depression of each bread halve and arrange 3 tomato slices over it.
  10. Place 1½ tbsp of alfa-alfa sprouts and ½ tbsp of black olives evenly on each bread halve.
  11. Sprinkle ¼ tsp of oregano, a little salt and ¼ tsp of pepper powder on each bread halve.
  12. Top each bread halve with ½ tbsp of cheese and bake them in a pre-heated oven at 200°c (400°f) for 8 to 10 minutes.
  13. Serve immediately.
