As a student and I suppose a “me thing”, I find myself always hungry; doesn’t matter what time- it can be during lectures or after midnight and I find myself searching for food that I can eat.
However, I’ve been told by my friends that I have pickier taste than most. This isn’t my fault- I blame it on my family; I’ve grown up on a wide range of food from Indian to Mexican and Italian. So I thought I would start sharing recipes with you.
This first one is a beginners’- where you can mix and match with pretty much anything so great for students as we’re all about the improv- and by that I mean whatever we can find in our cupboards and fridge when we can’t be bothered to go over to a store. I got this recipe from my mom, and the greatest thing about it is the fact the ingredients used can be flexible.
It’s somewhat like….*drumroll please”…. a Flatbread Pizza.
I’m going to list a mixture of ingredients that you can use for your base and toppings, it is up to you which you would prefer to use.
Essential- Some form of Flatbread
Bases- can use one or more of these:
Pesto- red or green
Ketchup if you’re not a fan of pesto.
Mozzarella cheese (If you don’t have this just use any type of cheese)
Any vegetables for example:
Etc. I mean surely you get the idea? (hint- think of pizza toppings)
- Preheat the oven to about 180 degrees
- Cover tray with foil- and place the flatbread on top, spread either red pesto or tomato ketchup
- Slice the mozzarella into slices and spread evenly across the flatbread- don’t forget this will melt!
- If you can cover the mozzarella with green pesto- it adds a delicious extra something
- Sprinkle any sliced vegetables you wish as toppings on top of the flatbread
- Put into the oven for about 10-15 minutes
- Ta-da! Enjoy!
Quick, simple and extremely flexible makes it a quick fix and which is both delicious and somewhat healthy depending upon the toppings you used.
I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have!
