Really tasty! The fresh basil, roasted red pepper and toasted oily bread makes it taste very decadent, like a sandwich you'd get in an upmarket cafe. I will play around with the cheese and meat filling to find my perfect combination.

Was nice.. I wasnt thrilled by this but my other half was. He loved them . I would make again but im in no rush. Nice but I could make a better pizza-ish type thing with less hassle frying stuff.
