Rolled pizza with vegetables

Appetizera couple of hours12-18 months


0.5 kg flour type “0”

1 egg

1 cube fresh brewer's yeast

150 g whole milk

3 red bell peppers

1 clove of garlic

1 tbsp capers (small), salted

2 tbsp black olives (taggiasca type)

1 egg, to brush

extra virgin olive oil, to taste

fine salt, to taste

100 g Parmigiano Reggiano in slivers

unsalted butter, to taste

flour, to thicken


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the brewer's yeast in the warm milk. In the meantime, in a bowl, mix together egg, olive oil and flour. Once the brewer’s yeast is completely dissolved, add it to the flour mix. Knead the mix in order to obtain a smooth dough. Score a cross into the dough and let it rise for at least 2 hours (until the dough doubles in volume).

  2. Soak the capers in water; replace the water 2-3 times so that the capers become less salty. Wash the bell peppers and bake them in the oven for 10 minutes at 180°C so that they can be easily peeled. Meanwhile pit the olives. Peel the peppers, cut them into strips and sauté them with a dash of olive oil and a clove of garlic. Add the olives and the well dried capers.

  3. Prepare the Parmigiano Reggiano slivers. Put the leavened dough on a pastry board and roll out into a very thin sheet. Top the dough with peppers, capers, olives and cheese slivers. Roll the dough and seal the edges of the shape well.

  4. Brush with a beaten egg and place the roll on a buttered and floured baking tin. Let it rise for 30 minutes.

  5. Bake in the oven at 170°C for 50 minutes.

Tips: You can roll out the dough using a sheeter, then use a rolling pin to join the dough strips together.
