A perfect and delicious way to use up leftovers.

Prep time
1 hr
Cook time
45 mins


For the dough (get the kids involved in mixing the dough!):

  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil plus some more for brushing
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 500g flour plus some more for your work surface
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • Community Co Salt and Pepper
  • 1 cup warm water

For the filling:

  • 1 cup of Mozzarella and 1 cup of cheddar (or 3 cheese mix)
  • Tomato
  • Leftover ham

How to make it:

  1. Pour warm water into a bowl and sprinkle in yeast sachet. Combine with a fork and leave to stand for about 5 minutes. It should become foamy.
  2. Whisk oil and salt into the mix, then sift in the flour and baking powder 1 cup at a time and stir. The dough may look a bit dry.
  3. Sprinkle some flour onto a clean bench, and place dough onto worktop.
  4. Knead the dough until it becomes elastic. This should take about 2 minutes.
  5. Thinly coat a bowl with oil, and place the dough inside. Cover and set aside in a warm environment for about 45 minutes, or until the dough has doubled in size. Punch the dough down, cover, and let it sit for another 30 minutes.
  6. Split the dough into 8 and roll out into circles 1cm thick. Sprinkle cheese over 1 half and place 2 slices of tomato and ham on top of the cheese. Fold the other side of the dough over, and brush with extra olive oil.
  7. Place onto a hot, lightly greased barbecue and cook for 2-3 minutes or until charred. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
