Makes: 1 Pizza Ring
Oven: 200 °C / 400 °F
Preparation Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Baking Time: 20 – 25 minutes
Ingredients:
360 g Cake flour (3 x 250 ml / 3 cups)
5 ml Salt (1 tsp)
5 ml Sugar (1 tsp)
60 g Margarine 
10 g Anchor Instant Yeast (1 packet)
150 ml Lukewarm water (½ cup + 2 tbsp) (⅓ warm water + cold water)
1   Large egg, beaten
    Beaten egg, to brush
    Flour, to dust
     
Filling:
230 g Cold meat, chopped
100 g Cheddar cheese (200 ml), grated
45 ml Tomato puree (3 tbsp)
30 ml Onion, chopped (2 tbsp)
60 ml Green and red pepper (4 tbsp of each), chopped
    Salt and pepper, to taste
Method:
  1. Mix flour, salt and sugar together. Rub the margarine into the dry ingredients with the fingertips. Add the Anchor Instant Yeast and mix.
  2. Add the lukewarm water and beaten egg to the flour mixture to form a soft dough and knead the dough until smooth and elastic.
  3. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface, cover with greased plastic and rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Line the bottom of a 23 cm-round-cake tin with greaseproof paper and grease the sides. 
  5. Mix the ingredients for the filling together and season to taste.
  6. Knock the dough down and roll the dough out into a rectangle, about 5 mm (¼ inch) thick.
  7. Spread the filling evenly over the surface of the dough and roll the dough up into a roll. Pinch the seam closed to seal and turn the seam towards the bottom and to the incer side of the ring.
  8. Place the roll, fold side down, onto a greased baking tray and shape into a ring. Join the ends by opening the one end and placing the other into the opening, then seal well.
  9. Using a scissors, cut the ring from the outside side of the ring towards the inner circle – about ¾ way in. Slices are about 2.5 cm (1 inch) apart.
  10. Cover with greased plastic and rise in a warm place for 20 – 25 minutes. 
  11. Dust the inner edge with flour and bake in a preheated oven 200 °C / 400 °F for 20 – 25 minutes until golden brown.
