Refrigerate pan and pastry circle for top. To prepare omelet filling: Heat
olive oil and butter in a large skillet. Add garlic and spinach, saute
together until wilted. Continue heating until water is evaporated. Season

one-half of the shredded cheese, and one-half of the meat. Add all the red
pepper and olives. Repeat layering in reverse order using remaining
ingredients. Cover omelet with reserved pastry circle and seal to side
