  3. In a large bowl, place, flour, buttermilk, EVOO, eggs and salt, loosely combine and add water mixture.

  8. In a bowl, mix dried herbs into tomato paste, set aside for five minutes.
  9. Using the back of a spoon, spread tomato paste all over the base as evenly as possible.
  10. Sprinkle cheese evenly all over the base, evenly.
