You will need to cut out some rounds from your Lo-dough, but don't throw out the offcuts. Put them in a food processor, whizz them up into crumbs and then put them into a sealed box in your fridge for up to 3 days or freeze to use later as part of one of our bakery recipes (one piece of Lo-Dough is 28g - all our recipes work to this measurement unless stated otherwise). This one is as easy to make as it is tasty to eat, so get cooking.

Method1. Using an 11cm pastry cutter, cut out two circles from your piece of Lo-Dough - your lid and your base. Keep back the offcuts for another recipe, as described above.
2. Lightly fry your onion, garlic and thyme in a few sprays of fry light until softened and put into the middle of the upturned mushroom. Top with the cheese and sprinkle with the chilli flakes.
3. Place the mushroom onto a tray, spray all over with the remaining fry light and bake in the oven at 180C/Gas 4 for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and oozy.
4. Arrange the salad items and the pickle on the Lo-dough base, then add the mushroom and the lid. Enjoy.
