  • 300 grams / (10 1/2 ounces) rye flour
  • 125 grams / (4 1/2 ounces) Portuguese chouriço
  • 1 tablespoon baker's yeast (fresh or dry yeast)
  • 50 grams / (1 3/4 ounces) grated cheese
  • 2 tablespoons oregano
  • 100 ml / (6 3/4 ounces) water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Place in a bowl the rye flour along with the eggs, olive oil, water, salt and, knead everything very well. Then, add the baker’s yeast and knead until it forms a ball.
  2. Place the dough over a table sprinkled with flour. Sprinkle the dough with a little more flour, rub your hands with a little olive oil to prevent the dough from sticking and, knead about five minutes until the dough is fully involved and soft (if necessary add a little more flour until the dough stop sticking to hands). Allow the dough rise about 25 minutes covered with cling film.
  3. Meanwhile, remove the skin from the chorizo​​, cut it in small pieces and chop the chouriço along with the cheese and the oregano.
  4. Extend the dough with the help of a rolling pin and, place on top the chopped chouriço. Cover completely the chouriço with the dough and knead a little more.
  5. Place the dough in a baking tray previously greased with margarine and sprinkled with flour, give it a rounded shape and allow to rest about 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. With a sharp knife, give three to four blows on top of the dough, sprinkle with a little flour and bring to preheated oven at 180°C / (350ºF) about 35 minutes.
