I wanted to share this recipe with all of you so I am doing a little shameless self-promotion.

Pizza rounds are my life saver when it comes to last minute meals.
They have stopped me from making the take-out phone call more than once.
I always have the ingredients on hand to make them and they store well if you make a bunch ahead of time.
They are a great way to use up leftovers.

This link explains it all with pictures.

Edit to add: These rounds are dry-fried and can be reheated in so many ways (by the fire, on the barbeque, in a toaster oven, etc.

it's probably no where near as yummy, and certaintly not as healthy, but I've had success using stale tortillas as base for pizza!

The pizza rounds are extremely similar to roti. I grew up a little bit in the Caribbean, but we moved to Canada when I was young, and all through my childhood we ate roti. Its actually a comfort food to me. These pizza rounds are a really interesting way to use them, thanks for sharing!

The roti pictures that came up with google sure look like pizza rounds.
How do you normally eat roti, or what do you eat with it?

Penny,

The different kinds of roti are as diverse as the regions that the people who eat them inhabit! There is really thin roti (called handkerchief roti), and there is some roti you "smash" up so it looks like ribbons (my favourite!), then there are more flat-bread style ones similar to the Greek style flatbread. This brings me to the regionality of cooking in general: I think its true that many diverse sets of people use a flatbread to eat with. I can think of this being used in India, Pakistan, the Caribbean, Greece, and the Middle-East. I worked at an Italian pizza place once, and we made a kind of flatbread with just plain pizza crusts for cheese platters.

In the Indo-Caribbean culture I grew up in, we use roti in place of cutlery for some meals. Typically there are several different kinds of food cooked in sauce and one takes some of each, gets some roti and devours.

I almost forgot to mention Dosa from the South of India!! That's a totally different recipe, but ends up being a food that I would call roti style.

I'm a chef by trade, and food is a passion, hope that my reply was inspiring (and not overwhelming),

If you've yet to try eating with roti I suggest you give it a try. Be warned, some styles are greasy....but use your judgement!

Happy eating,

Amjad
