Roasted Red Pepper and Olive Scacciata

Roasted Red Pepper and Olive Scacciata: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Cook Time: 20 min.
Scacciata, a traditional Sicilian bread, is baked around roasted peppers and fontina cheese for a warming vegetarian meal.


  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups sliced olives
  • 1/3 cup semolina flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbs prepared pesto
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florettes, blanched and chopped
  • 4 oz grated fontina cheese
  • 3/4 cup (6 oz.) roasted red bell peppers, coarsely chopped


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together water, 1 Tablespoon flour, yeast and sugar. Allow to sit for 5 minutes until foamy. Stir in 1/2 cup olives, semolina flour, salt, oil and remaining all purpose flour. Knead for 7-9 minutes until soft and smooth. Set aside for 45-60 minutes in a loosely covered, well-oiled bowl, until dough has doubled in size.
  • Divide dough into two pieces (8 1/2 ounce). Roll each piece into a 10-inch circle. Place one disc into the bottom of a 9-inch spring form pan with 2-inch high sides. Spread pesto over the bottom of the dough. Top with a layer of broccoli. Sprinkle with cheese and place remaining olives on top. Finish with a layer of roasted peppers.
  • Cover with remaining dough, pinching dough together at the sides so that filling is completely enclosed. Bake in a 450oF oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and crusty. Allow to cool slightly, then cut into 6 wedges and serve.
