This is a comforting Sunday night style supper. A smooth creamy tomato soup with a toasted flatbread full of melted cheese, all with the deliciously woody aroma of rosemary. And it's all cooked in the oven.

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.

Instructions

Resting time: 30 minutes

  1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C. Line a baking dish with baking paper.
  2. Place the flour and yoghurt in a bowl and stir until a sticky, smooth and elastic dough forms. Return to the bowl and rest for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place the tomatoes, leek, rosemary, oregano, salt, pepper and oil in the lined baking dish and massage everything together. Roast for 20 minutes or until golden.
  4. When the dough has rested, turn out onto a heavily floured bench and knead until smooth. Divide the dough into 4 balls. Roll out each ball out to a thin circle, then place the cheese on one side of each round and sprinkle with the dried rosemary. Fold the dough over the filling, then gently flatten with your palm. Brush with oil and sprinkle with salt. Place on a baking paper-lined tray and bake for 10 minutes or until golden.
  5. Place the roasted veggies in a blender with the chicken stock and cream and blitz until smooth. Adjust the seasoning if necessary, then eat with hot cheesy flatbreads for dunking.
