Preparation steps

1.

For the dough: In a small bowl, mix the yeast with the milk and sugar and stir until smooth. Place the rest of the dough ingredients in a mixing bowl, add the yeast-milk mixture, and knead with the paddle attachment of the electric mixer until smooth. Transfer the dough into a larger bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for approximately 1 hour.

2.

For the filling: Rinse the peppers, cut in half, remove the seeds, remove the white ribs, and cut into fine dice. Finely dice the olives. Drain the tuna and place in a bowl. Stir in the egg whites, olives, paprika, and herbs. Season with salt and pepper.

3.

Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll the dough into a sheet about 1 cm (approximately 1/3 inch) thick and 40 x 45 cm (approximately 15 x 17 inches) in size. Cut the dough in half lengthwise. In the center of each piece of dough, spoon half of filling, leave a border. With scissors or sharp knife, make cuts 1 inch apart on the long sides of dough to within 1/2 inch of filling. Alternately cross strips over filling. Fold ends under to seal.  Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with milk and sprinkle with pumpkin seeds.

4.

Bake in a preheated oven at180° C (approximately 350° F) about 40 minutes. If the bread browns too quickly, cover it with aluminum foil.
