  2. Mix the remaining eggs, ricotta, cheese and peppers.

  3. Pre-heat the open at 180 degrees Celsius.
  4. Divide the pastry in equal hand size balls.

  5. Roll the pastry thinly into circles of 9cm in diameter.
  6. Egg wash the edges.
  7. Put some of the ricotta mixture on the pastry on the edge.

  8. Fold the pastry circle in half and seal the edges.
