For the stuffing 

Heat the olive oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the garlic and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds. 

Add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute. 

Add the coloured capsicum, baby corn and zucchini and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes. 

Add the chilli flakes, oregano, salt and chilli sauce, mix well and cook on a medium flame for a few seconds. 

Switch off the flame, add the cheese and basil and mix well. Keep aside. 

Finalizing

Place 2 bread slices on a clean, dry surface and cut them into approx. 62 mm. (2½”) diameter round using a cookie cutter or a vati.

Now cut one round into 50 mm. (2”) diameter round using another cookie cutter or a vati. Only the outer ring is to be used. Discard the centre round. 

Apply a little butter and red chilli sauce on a bread roundel, place the bread ring over it and press it lightly. 

Put a tbsp of the stuffing in the centre depression of the ring and spread it evenly. Apply a little butter on the edges of the bread ring. 

Repeat steps 1 to 4 to make 13 more discs. 

Arrange half the discs on a greased baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (400°F) for 10 to 12 minutes or till the cheese meltes and the discs turn crispy. 

Repeat step 6 to bake 7 more discs.
