Preparation steps

1.
For the pesto, blend the basil, garlic and pine nuts to a fine purée using a mixer. Add the oil in a constant, thin stream to form a creamy, thick pesto. Mix through the parmesan and season to taste with salt and ground black pepper.
2.
Slice the top off the bread and hollow it out, leaving around 1 cm. Spread the base with a little pesto and layer with the artichokes, some of the peppers and half of the mozzarella. Spread some pesto on top, and continue with the remaining peppers and the mozzarella, olives and spinach, seasoning with salt and ground black pepper in the process. Spread the remaining pesto on top and cover with the bread 'lid'. Leave to marinate for around 1 hour.
3.
Cut into pieces and serve.
