How to make it

Get ready for a culinary adventure that combines the art of fermentation with the comfort of flatbreads, creating a dish that’s both sophisticated and satisfying.

  • In a bowl, combine flour and salt. In a separate bowl, dissolve sugar and yeast in warm water
  • Let it sit for 5 minutes until frothy
  • Add the yeast mixture and olive oil to the flour
  • Mix until a dough forms
  • Knead for 5-7 minutes until smooth
  • Cover and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour
  • Roll out the dough into flatbreads, spreading fermented chilli paste evenly on each
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat
  • Cook flatbreads for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden and slightly puffed
  • In a separate pan, sauté onions in butter until caramelized
  • Top flatbreads with caramelized onions and Tunworth cheese slices
  • Broil for 3-4 minutes until cheese is melted
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and serve warm
