In a small pot add the olive oil and sauté a chopped onion for 2 minutes in low heat.

Add a chopped bell pepper and sauté for 2 more minutes.

Continue by adding the tomato sauce, water, salt, pepper and oregano. Let the sauce simmer for 8 minutes and then set aside to cool.

step 4

Oil the bottom and the sides of a baking tray.

Place the puff pastry sheet in the baking tray and stretch its sides a bit so that it can fold over the second sheet.

Spread plenty of tomato sauce over the puff pastry.

step 7

Add one layer of gouda cheese and a second one with ham.

step 8

Place the second sheet of puff pastry on the top and merge the two pastry sheets to seal the ham and cheese inside by using a fork.

Brush everything with egg wash.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (350ºF) for 30-40minutes.
