Homemade Healthy pizza

The great thing about pizza is you can make up whatever you want. You can use rocket, mushrooms, sliced fennel etc. Add your favourite herbs; fresh coriander, parsley, chives or thyme works well, or whatever cheeses you want; feta, goats' cheese, mozzarella, cheddar etc

Ingredients

  • 3 wholemeal pitta breads
  • Homemade tomato sauce (I've given this recipe before or see a quick version below)
  • 1 red pepper – cut in half and finely sliced
  • A handful of baby spinach
  • 1 ball of mozzarella (around 125g) – torn into shreds
  • A sprinkle of extra virgin olive oil
  • Chopped parsley
  • Freshly cracked pepper

Instructions

  1. For a quick tomato sauce, simply saute a finely chopped onion in a little water for 5 mins. Add 3 chopped up tomatoes, a pinch of salt and pepper, 1 crushed garlic and cook for another 5-10 mins – hey presto!!
  2. Half the pitta breads, place them on baking tray and put under medium grill.
  3. Leave for a few minutes so that they start to toast.
  4. Sprinkle them with a little extra virgin olive oil.
  5. Cover them in the home made tomato sauce, sprinkle the peppers, parsley and spinach on top. Then place the shredded mozzarella on top with a little freshly cracked pepper.
  6. Place under the grill for 5 mins or until the cheese has melted.
