Carozza must be one of the best cheese toasties in the world! Here we've filled walnut bread with buffalo mozzarella, rocket leaves, pear pieces and walnut pesto, and then fried the sandwich with a weight on top to achieve the ultimate crispy exterior.
We've used a variety of different cheeses in our winter dishes, some containing animal rennet. To make these dishes truly vegetarian, substitute with vegetarian alternatives. For a blue, try Oxford Blue, Cropwell Bishop or Yorkshire Blue. For buffalo mozzarella, substitute Waitrose Grated Mild Mozzarella and for Parmigiano Reggiano, use Castelli Vegetarian Parmesan instead.
