This recipe is super simple but absolutely packed with flavour.

It’s made on repeat in my house–I just can’t get enough of it. The spelt flour provides a lovely nutty base and you can mix and match the toppings, etc.

But I absolutely love the combination of basil pesto and the gooey bursting roast tomatoes. A lovely taste of summer in every bite!

Tips;
The pesto & roast tomatoes also make the best toast topper.
Other yummy additions–roast aubergine, capers, olives, peppers, mushrooms, cashew parmesan
Add any fresh herbs–I love basil, thyme, mint, oregano.
Swaps–use any flour–white, wholemeal, rye are all great.
Or use a gluten-free flour as the base.
