Hi guys,

I am a master degree student in marketing and now i'm doing the project work about biodegradable plates. I would like to know some comment about my eco-products. Would you please help me to fill the questionnaire at the below link.

I've done similar variants using Lavosh bread which holds up well and is a little more flexible and chewy. Also try it with some chopped apple and curry paste (curry powder+canola oil)instead of the pesto. You can add a little shredded cabbage for extra crunch as well. Omit cheese for the lactose intolerant (I have one in my regular group)

Not sure if you American folks have the alternative choices of roti,Kurdish and other forms of naan etc. I find pita bread resembles shoe leather compared with these alternatives, Currently eating a version consisting of 70% oat flour just for a change.
