Recipe by Deantini
READY IN: 1hr 40mins




  • Bread dough:
  • Heat the milk until luke warm, stir in yeast until absorbed.
  • Add sugar, salt and oil.
  • Add whole wheat and all purpose flour (reserve 3/4 cup of all purpose flour).
  • Knead until smooth and not sticky.
  • Let rise for 30 min in a bowl under a dishtowel.
  • Filling:
  • Brown the meat and pour off juices.
  • Add bell pepper and onion.
  • Season with salt, pepper, oregano and any spice of your liking, put aside.
  • After the dough has risen punch it back down and knead for a couple of minutes.
  • Divide the dough in 20 small balls. I usually divide the dough in half, then in quarters and then each quarter into 5 balls, to get even sizes.
  • Each ball is rolled out thinly with a rolling pin to approx a dessert plate size. Use the reserved flour to help non sticking.
  • Brush the rim with egg.
  • Smear the middle with 1 tbsp of tomato, add 1-2 tbsp meat filling to the middle and top with cheese.
  • Fold over and pinch the rim with a fork - you should now have a half moon shaped bread with filling. The filling should not be visible or falling out.
  • Let rise for 10 minutes.
  • Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes until golden.
