Red Pepper Bread Recipe with a load of onions, red peppers and sesame seeds is super easy to make. It is vegetarian and tastes so good!




  • 3 red bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 2 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup warm water


  1. First make the dough: Sift the flour in a large bowl. Add in instant yeast and salt. Whisk well. In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt and warm water. Pour this mixture in the flour mixture. Combine them well. Knead it well until everything holds together. It will be a pretty soft and sticky dough. Wet your fingers and pat the top of the dough. Cover it with a kitchen towel. Put it in a warm place and wait at least one hour so that it rises well.
  2. Meanwhile you can prepare the topping mixture you’ll spread on the dough. Combine all peppers and onions in a bowl. Add in sesame seeds, olive oil, pepper paste and salt. Stir well.
  3. After the dough rises enough (after at least one hour), preheat the oven to 350F. Oil a baking sheet and transfer the dough on it. Now it’s time for your hands to work more. Flatten the dough in the baking pan equally, pressing on it with you palm. Spread the topping mixture on the dough with your hands.
  4. Before putting it into the oven, cut it in squares so that it is easier to remove from the pan after it’s baked.
  5. Place it into the oven and bake it for 30-40 minutes.
