How do you pay voluntary NI Contributions...?

I've been told I need to pay Voluntary NI Contributions because I have a gap in payments and that'll affect my pension unless I fill it in. To pay it, I apparently need to submit a self-assessment tax return for HMRC for 2021/22 before the end of this month. The HMRC site says I don't have to do one but I thought I could fill one out anyway and there'd be a box where I just enter the amount of NI I need to pay. My problem is that I can't progress past the screen that asks what adjustments need to be made to tax owed or paid because there isn't any owing and you can't enter 0 in the box. So I can't complete the return and therefore can't pay the NI. The 31st is rapidly approaching. I asked an accountant but they didn't reply. Can anyone point me in the right direction or tell me what I need to do?
