  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 sweet green pepper chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 6 oz salami ham or smoked turkey, diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 egg yolk

Method

In skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, green pepper, salt and pepper until softened, about 4 minutes. Let cool.

Meanwhile, on floured surface, roll out half of the dough into 10-inch (25 cm) circle. Place on greased pizza pan or rimless baking sheet. Set aside.

In bowl, whisk eggs; stir in mozzarella and Cheddar cheeses, salami, parsley and onion mixture. Spread over dough on pan, leaving 1-inch (2.5 cm) border around edge.

Roll out remaining dough into 10-inch (25 cm) circle. In bowl, whisk egg yolk with 1 tsp (5 mL) water; lightly brush some over border on bottom crust. Place top crust over filling; with fork, press edge to seal. Brush with remaining egg yolk mixture; cut 3 slits in top crust.

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until golden, about 45 minutes.
