While the bread dough is rising, prepare the meat topping.  Sauté the onion, garlic and green peppers in olive oil.  Add the ground beef and Chorizo.  Cook until no pink color remains in meat.  Add ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and oregano.  Add tomatoes and simmer for thirty minutes or more.  Cool completely before adding to the bread dough.

When dough rises, punch down and press into greased jelly roll pan.  With a slotted spoon, put meat mixture on top of the dough*.  Let rise again until puffy.  *Sprinkle with oregano and cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees on the lower rack, check in 15 to 20 minutes for brownness.  Loosen edges and sides off of pan immediately.  Cool on baking racks.

Makes three pans.
