Herbed pizza strips

Posted on July 22, 2009. Filed under: pizza | Tags: , |

This style of flat bread is eaten all around the Mediterranean regions. Freshly made bread is rolled out and cut into thick strips, brushed generously with olive oil, flavoured with plenty of garlic and just the right amount of herbs sprinkled on top.
Baked in the oven till the crust is crisp and golden brown on the outside and soft and chewy inside.
Leftover scraps of pizza dough can be used for this recipe. It is best when freshly baked, while still warm and fragrant to eat as a snack or to go with a meal.
