  1. 1. Combine flour, salt and oregano in a large mixing bowl. Rub in butter with fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre, add the milk and mix to a soft dough. Knead lightly on a floured surface and roll out into a rectangle approximately 25 x 35cm in size.
  2. 2. Spread dough with tomato paste, and top with salami, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, capsicum and olives. Roll up as for a Swiss roll and place on a buttered oven tray. Using scissors, make deep cuts 2cm apart along the top of the roll, without cutting all the way through. Gently push each slice to alternate sides, pinching the tops to create a crocodile effect.
  3. 3. Brush with egg and bake at 200ºC for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
