Spice bread with ham and cheese filling

This is my own recipe. It's basis is a simple recipe for pizza crust that I got from a home economics cookery book, but it ended up as something completely different. Enjoy!

300 ml flour
1/2 tsp coriander
100 ml wheat germ (optional)
1 tsp garlic powder
2 1/2 tsp dry yeast*
2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbs water, lukewarm
1/2 tsp curry powder, mild
1 tbs vegetable oil

Mix together dry ingredients, including yeast and spices. Add oil and water and mix well. Knead until the dough is well mixed and no cracks are visible on the surface. Stand in a warm place for 40 minutes to 1 hour to rise. Knead again and roll out into an oblong shape. Thin the edges.

diced ham
cheese (I recommend Gouda)
Cottage cheese (optional)

Mix together ham and cottage cheese and put in the centre of the dough oblong. Sprinkle grated cheese over the filling. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling and press edges together. Brush with vegetable oil and sprinkle with grated cheese. Stand in a warm place for 20-25 minutes, to rise. Bake at 190 deg. C. for 30 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

-try using caraway seed along with the other spices.
-make a filling with everything you usually put in a pizza, or use the dough recipe to make a spicy pizza crust
