Fougasse Stuffed with Roasted Red Peppers



Here is another bread that I made using the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day book.  I don't really know what Fougasse means, but it looked neat with the cut outs, and my husband loves red peppers, so I decided to give it a go.  Being that I can't stand bell peppers, I didn't try this.  But he said it was really good.  He did think I used a tad too many peppers though, so if you try this scale back a bit.  Unless you REALLY like peppers, in which case, go crazy!

I was a little scared of this bread.  It had cut outs!  Really?  I am a bread novice, how could I handle a stuffed bread with cutouts?!  But it was really easy.  It used the same Olive Oil dough my Focaccia bread used. 

Fougasse Stuffed with Roasted Red Pepper
From Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day
Printable Recipe

1 pound Olive Oil Dough
1 Medium red bell pepper (or jarred roasted red pepper, drained)
Coarse Salt
1/4 tsp thyme (I didn't have any, used rosemary)
Olive Oil
Whole wheat flour (for dusting, other flour would work too)

If you are using a whole bell pepper, roast it under the broiler or on top of your gas stove.  Put it in a bowl, and cover with plastic wrap for 10 minutes.  Peel the skin away.  Slice into strips.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with baking stone in the oven.  Place a broiler pan near the bottom of the oven.

Dust the surface of the refrigerated dough with flour.  Cut off a 1 pound piece.  Dust the piece with more flour and shape into a ball, stretching the dough around the bottom on all 4 sides.

Using a rolling pin, form a large flat round about 1/8 in thick.  Add more flour than normal, when you are going to cut slits, so the dough doesn't close immediately.  Place the dough on a pizza peel (or flat cookie sheet) covered in whole wheat flour.




Cut the slits into the circle of the dough, only on one half.  You made need to add more flour if it is sticky.  Spread open the holes a little using your fingers.  Please the red pepper strips on the other half of your dough, leaving a 1 inch border.  Dampen the dough edge, fold the slitted side over to cover the peppers.  Pinch to seal.  Brush the loaf with olive oil.




Slide the fougasse onto the hot stone.  Pour 1 cup hot water into the broiler tray.  Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

Allow to cool, then slice or break into pieces to serve.

This looks so good! I have a recipe for Chorizo and Thyme fougasse which I've been meaning to try for ages too. Maybe I should have a fougasse day soon!

That looks fantastic. It's a bit like a calzone, isn't it, just with a fancier name. Which, by the way, is simply a French term for that type of folded over, stuffed and sometimes slashed bread.

That's beautiful! I just ordered a copy of Artisian Bread in 5 Minutes a day after reading your last bread post. I was excited for it to arrive, but now I really can't wait!

I love bell peppers and eating with nice rustic bread sounds like a great idea. It's my first time seeing peppers are stuffed in bread, but this is such a brilliant idea! In a way we can put anything... right? Very easy to adapt and love it!

What an awesome idea! Roasted red peppers are my favorite, so I'm sure I'd eat this entire loaf. Love how you sneaked your Global knife into the photo. ;)

This looks delicious! I like peppers, but in moderation. I think you handled the cut outs beautifully! We would enjoy this very much...although I'd probably put some feta in it!

Beautiful!! I love peppers, so I bet this is amazing. I was a Vikings fan in high school, but I was easily swayed to the dark side after getting married ;)

Wow! This looks wonderful ... rustic is right! I would imagine you could put all sorts of fun things in this bread ... crumbled cooked sausage and slivered onions would be awesome too!

So neat to find your blog!

I can see what your husband was saying - I love me some red peppers but that does look like a lot! Either way, I'd be all about trying it :D
