Leidenfrost effect and volume of water

I conducted an experiment at school where I changed the volume of water and looked at the time taken for the water to fully evaporate, whilst undergoing the Leidenfrost effect. I'm trying to write up the theory behind it, but I keep getting confused with the terms. There seems to be so many different complex physics theories behind it and I don't know where to specify. I can't seem to balance writing up an explanation without getting too in depth that I don't understand the physics. I understand the basics such as pressure, surface tension, and vaguely Laplace's Law. Whenever capillary length gets mentioned I get lost. I also don't know how to include thermodynamics into this, but it seems to be a major part. If anyone could explain some of the theory behind it in simpler terms I would be really really grateful.
