To prepare the filling, heat the olive oil in a pan. Saute the garlic and red pepper for about 2 minutes or till the raw smell of the garlic is gone.
On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a 12"x10" rectangle. Arrange the whole spinach leaves down the center of the rectangle to form a bed leaving enough borders of dough around it for folding. Spoon the sauteed garlic and red peppers along with the olive oil on the bed of spinach. Top with feta cheese. Sprinkle the olive slices. Finally arrange the cheese slices on top overlapping each other. Cover the filling bringing one long side of the dough border into the center. Overlap with the other long side to cover well. Pinch the seam to seal well and tuck the ends under. Place on a greased baking sheet. Cover with a cloth and keep at room temperature in a warm place for about 30 min.
Make long slashes about ½" deep on the top of the loaf at an interval of every 3" or so. Brush with melted garlic butter. Sprinkle poppy or sesame seeds. Bake in a preheated oven at 200°Cfor about 30 min. Cool slightly and slice along the slashes.
