  • Tiella couldn't be easier to make: Roll out a round of your favorite crusty bread or pizza dough, lay on your toppings combination, any herbs and seasonings you prefer; drizzle with olive oil, then clap on and crimp-seal a second round of rolled out dough. Cut a few vent holes with a sharp knife, bake. Cool on a wire rack for a bit before slicing.
