This two ingredient flatbread is so easy to make and really cheap too (around 17p a flatbread!) so it’s the perfect alternative to shop-bought bread. In this recipe I make the flat breads and then add toppings and cook in the oven to make mini pizzas, but you could use them to accompany casserole dishes, curries or add some avocado and scrambled eggs to make … Continue reading Recipe: Two Ingredient Flatbread

The book was published by Penguin in July last year and has received a lot of praise from critics and media outlets since then, even dubbed the “thriller of the year”.
