It’s a gorgeous combination of oozing mozzarella, fragrant basil pesto and sweet sun-dried tomatoes in a kind of grilled eggy bread! If you can’t find the Crosta & Mollica bread, any rustic loaf, thickly sliced, would work.

Of course, the best ones I’ve tried were in Barcelona, but how do these ultra-convenient oven baked ones compare? I rushed to my nearest Marks & Spencer the following morning to find out… Continue reading
