Easy, crunchy, juicy and versatile !

I made this recipe for my family once and it was absolutely amazing! Next time I thought my pantry was almost empty, I remembered this and substituted mozzarella with scamorza and used the vegetables I had left in the fridge. To this day, I am proud of the result!
