Homemade Pizza

DSC00892 (Small).JPGMaking your own pizza not only takes less time than waiting for home delivery, but it is many times healthier too.  Buy a few frozen bases to keep in your freezer, and always have on hand sachets of tomato paste. You can freeze what you don’t use for up to three months!  I like to sprinkle some chilli flakes on for a bit of zing.


Serves 2

1 cup of veges, sliced (see suggestions)
½ cup of meat  eg Shredded salami, ham, SPAM, shredded chicken, cooked mince
¾ cup grated mozarella cheese
½ small thinly sliced onion
3 tablespoons of tomato paste
A few fresh basil leaves and oregano leaves (substitute 1 teaspoon dried italian herbs)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 220 degrees celcius
  2. Spread unthawed pizza base with tomato paste leaving a 1cm border for the crust
  3. Sprinkle half cup mozarella on the base. At this stage, add your herbs (chilli flakes, basil leaves, oregano etc)
  4. Arrange topping in a consistent layer on base and top with remaining cheese
  5. Place on a tray in oven for 10-15mins (see instructions on pizza base box) – or for extra crispy base, place directly onto oven rack.
