- Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
- Cut the loaf of bread lengthwise, but not all the way to through into 2 separate pieces. The edge should still be joined together. Open it like a book and score the inside of each side lengthwise. Place loaf in a baking pan, cut side down. Bake for 5-10 minutes, until it becomes crunchy.
For the carbonara filling
- Heat the milk in a saucepan or in the microwave.
- Melt the butter in another saucepan or in the microwave.
- Transfer butter to a pot. Place over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk until the flour turns slightly golden.
- Add the milk to the pot in small batches, whisking continuously. Make sure each addition is completely incorporated before adding the next. When all of the milk has been added, continue cooking until the béchamel sauce thickens. You also want to make sure you cook it enough that it no longer has the taste of flour. Taste the sauce to make sure.
- Last, add the salt, pepper, nutmeg, grated cheese and thyme. Stir to combine.
- Remove the bread from the oven and spread the béchamel sauce over the cut side of the bread.
- Cut the bacon slices into smaller pieces and spread over the béchamel sauce.
- Place back in oven and bake for 20-30 minutes, until the béchamel turns golden.
- Cut the loaf in half, separating the 2 sides. Then cut each piece in half again, lengthwise. You should now have 8 equal sized pieces. Cut all the pieces in half again, diagonally, creating 8 triangular pieces.
- Arrange the pieces on a plate in such a way that it resembles a pizza!
- Serve immediately.
