These came out really well. I used Shipton Traditional Organic White and 325ml of water. I tried a variety of seasonings - favourite was sun dried tomato, olives and corriander, but you need to cut them up small so you can roll them out flat enough! Also, beware of the pan getting too hot, by the end of the session they were getting a little burned. A new thing for me and definitely something I'll try again.
