Number of Servings: 4


    4 white pitta breads
    400g tin chopped tomatoes with herbs
    2 pinches of caster sugar
    2 pinches of hot chilli powder
    2 sundried tomatoes, thinly sliced
    4 thin slices of pepperoni, shredded into strips
    1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
    1/2 small yellow pepper, thinly sliced
    8 green olives, pitted and halved
    5g freshly grated parmesan
    30g ricotta cheese
    A small handful of shredded basil leaves
    A handful of wild rocket leaves
    Balsamic vinegar


1. Preheat a conventional oven to 220ºC or a fan-assisted one to 200ºC. Run a sharp knife 1cm in from the edge of each pitta bread and follow the outline to remove the top layer of bread and create a border for the pizzas.
2. Place the pittas directly onto the top shelf of the oven and cook for two minutes to crisp up.
Sal's Tips
1. Alternative toppings could include canned tuna, sweetcorn, courgette, parma ham or spring onions.
2. You could also use olive oil instead of balsamic vinegar to season the pizzas once cooked, and wholemeal instead of white pitta breads.
3. Meanwhile, place the chopped tomatoes in a sieve to remove all the excess juice. Divide the tomatoes among the pittas and spread out evenly.
4. Sprinkle each with the sugar and chilli powder. Top with the sundried tomatoes, pepperoni, red onion, pepper and olives. Sprinkle over the parmesan and dot the ricotta on top.
5. Bake the pittas directly on the oven shelf for eight minutes or until cooked. Serve immediately, scattered with the basil and rocket leaves and drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
