1 yellow (bell) pepper, sliced into strips
1 medium red onion, sliced
1 courgette, evenly chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

Make 6 medium thick chapatis and leave to cool. Brush the vegetables and a hot griddle with olive oil. Season the vegetables with the black pepper and chargrill for one minute on each side and remove onto a plate. Heat a pan on a medium heat and add the tomato passata or pizza sauce.
