As if something like this needs an introduction but I shall do my best to do it justice. This recipe embodies all that anchors itself into your culinary repertoire. Simple. Versatile. Economic. Quick. Particularly befitting for a quick lunch and as a means of utilising the leftovers in your fridge.
As it doesn't use yeast but rather self-raising flour the crust ends up slightly crispy and fluffy - almost something like a pancake. However, this adds to its appeal and I assure you.. it is indeed worth it.
Start by mixing together the ingredients in a 20cm diameter non-stick pan, without heat. (Do not worry if it comes out slightly sticky - it is meant to be so)
Add 4 Tablespoons of your preferred sauce (bechamel, pesto, anything really!) spread all the way to the edge, followed by your preferred toppings (I kept it simple with mushrooms, cheese and a tomato based sauce). Add as much cheese as you prefer (Who am I to dictate the quantity of cheese??)
Cover with lid and cook on medium heat for 10-15 minutes.
Transfer to a board to sit for 2 minutes before serving.
