Tasty, yeast free, light, fluffy and great for lunch, parties or picnics. This bread has oregano, basil, pizza ingredients and pockets of melted cheese. I added ham, pineapple, olives and capsicum but you can use any pizza ingredients.
Ingredients 2 cups self-raising flour (gluten free, if required)
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp oregano
1/2 tbsp dried basil
60 g cold butter (or nuttelex if lactose free)
1/2 cup chopped ham
1/2 cup kalamata olives, cut
1/2 cup chopped pineapple
1/2 cup chopped red capsicum
3/4 cup grated cheese, mozzarella or cheddar (lactose free, if required)
1 cup milk (lactose free, if required)
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, oregano and basil to combine.
Add the butter and use fingertips to combine until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Put the ham, olives, pineapple, capsicum and 1/2 cup cheese into the flour mixture. Stir to combine.
Add 3/4 cup milk and use a knife to mix the flour mixture until just combined, take care not to overwork the dough.
Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured bench top and knead until just combined.
Form a 20 cm circle and place on the baking tray.
Brush the dough with the remaining milk.
Spread 1/4 cup of cheese evenly on top.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the bread turns brown on the top.
