This recipe is the Speedy Gonzales of pizzas, because you don’t need to make your own pizza dough and wait ages for it to rise! Choose any toppings you like – I’ve chosen margherita, as it’s a true Italian classic.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 mini pita breads
60g tomato paste
1 medium garlic clove, finely grated or crushed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch finely ground black pepper
80g mozzarella cheese, grated
1 tablespoon firmly packed basil leaves

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180ºC. Place the pita breads on a baking tray and set aside.
  2. In a non-reactive mixing bowl, combine the tomato paste, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Using a small palette knife, evenly divide and spread the tomato paste mixture on both pita breads. Top each with a sprinkling of cheese and then scatter over the basil leaves.
  3. With adult help: Wearing oven mitts, place the baking tray on the middle shelf of the oven. Cook the pizzas for roughly 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden. Once again wearing oven mitts, remove the baking tray from the oven.
  4. Using a spatula, carefully transfer the pizzas to a serving platter. Using a pizza cutter (or, with adult help, a sharp knife), slice the pizzas into quarters. Serve immediately.

Time-saving tips

  • Have all your equipment and ingredients ready. Find a kitchen hand to help you prepare the ingredients ahead of time. Pre-heat your oven to 180ºC at least 20 minutes before cooking. Have an oven tray positioned in the middle shelf of the oven.
