Serves 8:

1 kg. squid; 6 onions; 4 green or red peppers; 2 envelopes of saffron; 3/4 kg. flour; 40 gr. yeast; 2 eggs; oil; 1 l. water and salt.

Pastry: In a mixing bowl mix warm water, yeast and salt. Add the flour with a dash of oil and knead until formed. Leave to rise for 15 minutes covered with a cloth. Put litre of oil in a frying pan and brown the finely chopped onions and peppers. Add the squid, saffron and salt to taste.

Roll out the pastry and place half on a tray greased with a little of the sauce from the filling. Add the filling evenly spread over the base and cover with the other half of the pastry.
