  • ciabatta bread mix 250g
  • olive oil
  • onion 1, diced
  • garlic 2 cloves, crushed
  • red pepper ½ small, seeded and diced
  • green pepper ½ small, seeded and diced
  • chilli flakes ¼ tsp
  • ground cumin ½ tsp
  • ground cinnamon ¼ tsp
  • flat-leaf parsley a handful, chopped
  • halloumi 250g block, grated
  • butter 25g, melted
  • pickled chillies to serve


  • Step 1

    Make up the ciabatta bread mix following the pack instructions and leave while you make the filling.

  • Step 2

    Heat a non-stick frying pan with 1 tbsp oil, then add the onion, garlic and peppers and cook until soft. Add the spices, some seasoning and cook for a few minutes, then stir in the parsley and take off the heat. Cool and mix in the grated halloumi.

  • Step 3

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Divide the dough into 4, then roll out into long oval shapes. Divide the cheese and pepper mix between the ovals leaving a 1cm border. Pinch the dough at each end so you are making a kind of slipper shape.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 20 minutes until puffed and golden, then brush the breads all over with melted butter and serve with pickled chillies.
