This wholesome Milanese bread is ideal for a country picnic. And is also equally good for a buffet presentation. Smoked pepper and cheese bread is essentially a layered pizza bread sandwich baked in a round tin. Serve it hot, warm, cold or reheated. Hearty soups or salads are ideal companions.
- Grill the red, green and yellow pepper in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (400°F) for 10 to 15 minutes till the skin is dark brown.
- Allow it to cool and peel the skin off.
- Cut into small pieces and combine with the cheese, rosemary and salt. Mix well.
- Divide the pizza dough into 3 equal parts.
- Roll out each portion of the dough into a circle of 125 mm. (5") diameter.
- Place one circle in a greased tin of 125 mm. (5") diameter.
- Top with half of the pepper and the cheese filling mixture.
- Place another circle of the rolled dough. Press firmly at the ends so as to seal the filling inside the two dough circles.

- Cover with the third dough circle and seal the ends tightly. Allow it to prove under a wet muslin cloth for 10 minutes or till it doubles in volume. Prick with a fork at regular intervals.
- Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C (360°F) for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown and the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
