Hello my lovelies! This recipe is a team effort. A while back Nicholas from Blogtastic Food asked a bunch of us if we would develop recipes using his delicious Smoky & Spicy Pulled Pork. I had the idea for these khachapuri straight away but life being what it is I kept running out of time to work on it. I made the pulled pork and froze part of it to keep testing later. FYI pulled pork freezes really well. Just pull it out, pop it in a skillet with a little oil and sauce and heat it through completely. Like new. Perfect for a two person household. Khachapuri are like the pizza of the Caucasus. Along the spice routes from Asia to the Middle East via eastern Europe there are variations on this chewy golden bread that is somewhere between topped and stuffed with lots of delicious things. Classic toppings include spinach and fresh cheese, or ground lamb and spices. Traditionally partway through cooking a little well is made in the toppings and an egg is baked into the top. Today we are using spiced tomatoes along with our pulled pork and topping with dollops of feta and greek yoghurt. One of these is a good meal or hearty lunch. Or slice up and serve as snacks for guests. I took leftovers to a meeting and they disappeared in seconds. If you have made a homemade pizza before these will be a breeze.
