Difficulty:👍👍

Cost: £££

Serves 2 people


1 clove of garlic
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
Teaspoon of dried mixed herbs
Tomato puree
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Handful of mozzarella cheese
A handful of cheddar cheese
1 French stick or
2 muffins or
2 pitta bread or
2 tortilla wraps
Toppings according to taste
E.g. sliced onions, peppers, mushrooms, courgettes, spinach, rocket or basil leaves, olives, capers, tinned anchovies or tuna, ham, salami or pancetta, etc.

  1. Put the oven on at 200C or gas mark 8
  2. Begin by making the tomato sauce. Peel & crush the garlic clove and mix it together in a bowl with the tinned tomatoes and dried herbs. Add tomato puree until your pizza sauce is as thick as you want. Season to taste.
  3. Grate the cheese(s).
  4. If you are using a French stick or muffins, slice them in half down the middle. Place whichever bread you are using on a baking tray.
  5. Cut up your toppings into slices or small pieces so that they will cook relatively quickly.
  6. Spread the tomato sauce on the bread base then cover with the toppings you have chosen. Sprinkle on the cheese(s).
  7. Put in the oven and bake until the cheese is nice and melted – probably about 10-12 minutes although it is worth keeping a close watch to ensure it does not burn.
