These pizza enchiladas were born entirely from my indecisiveness – I can never decide whether I prefer Italian or Mexican cuisine. Italian is obviously amazing (the word ‘pizza’ is the only explanation needed here), but Mexican offers up all things spicy, cheesy, beany… It’s a really tough call.
This is the kind of recipe that makes me so, so desperate for someone to invent calorie-free pastry. I could happily eat a million of these cheese and onion lentil rolls.
