I’m just on my way back from a sunny and inspiring weekend at River Cottage Festival. We ate some delicious sustainable, local food and listened to many inspiring talks and watched some wonderful food demos–more on that soon.

Buy first here’s some pretty pink and fluffy flatbread pizzas topped with griddled aubergine and courgette and topped with my favorite creamy mint dressing. It’s so delicious not to mention quite striking, don’t you think?

I made the flatbread using my classic yeasted pizza dough as I wanted really fluffy flatbreads but I’ve also provided a gluten & yeast free version.

I hope you enjoy xxx

    • Heat a small/pancake pan until very hot, then spoon the mixture a ladle full at a time into the pan and fry for 1-2 minutes until the underside is firm. Carefully flip the pancakes and then cook for another minute until the pancakes are cooked through and slightly golden. Repeat.

    • Add a little water to loosen if desired.

    To cook the flatbreads

    • Heat a large griddle pan or frying pan to medium.

    1. What are the macros per person for this recipe? Looks lovely! I’ll make it tomorrow probably, can’t wait

    2. My dough is with this amount of water a pancake batter consistency (top recipe with 250 g wholemeal flour and 350 ml lukewarm water). and only kneading is possible with my mixer. How comes that?

      Kind regards,
