Incredibly easy and packed with flavour, this was created as perfect post-pub food.
It can be stacked higher to accommodate however, many people you are feeding and requires very little by way of skill.
Ben was doubtful that the flavour of Parma ham and sweet chilli sauce was a tasty combination but it proved a winner.

If you are feeding more than one person, once you have turned the sandwich, scatter over more of the filling followed by another flatbread, before turning and cooking for an extra minute.
Continue to layer in the same way, but take care as you turn over the stack.
