How to Make Mediterranean Torte

Step-by-Step

  1. Roll out each bread loaf, on lightly floured surface, into a 12-inch circle. Fit one dough into a 9-inch springform pan, allowing edges to overhang.
  2. Drain all the liquid out of the canned ingredients and get out excess moisture in spinach and red pepper strips, with paper towels. Set aside.
  3. Saute the mushrooms using a nonstick skillet for 5-8 minutes. Drain.
  4. Layer in this order:
    1/2 Salami
    All Mushrooms
    All Olives
    1/2 Cheese
    1/2 Ham
    All Spinach
    All Peppers
    1/2 Salami
    1/2 Ham
    All Artichokes
    1/2 Cheese
  5. Brush egg mixture on overhanging pastry edges. Top the torte with remaining round shaped bread dough. Fold overhanging edges over top pastry, crimping as necessary to seal. Brush top with remaining egg mixture.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees, on bottom oven rack, for 30 minutes. Cover the top with aluminum foil and bake additional 15-20 more minutes.
  7. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Remove sides of pan. Cut into wedges. Serve
