Friday Night Pizza on a Sunday

This pizza is so incredibly easy to make, and everybody will love it. It takes less time than ordering takeaways, and tastes so much better.

Serves: 3-5


3 pizza good quality bought thin pizza bases (or use Sarah's recipe here)
6 tablespoons tomato paste
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
200 grams prosciutto (or you could use salami, chorizo or bits of good sausage squeezed out of the casing)
100 grams buffalo mozzarella cheese
⅓ cup basil leaves (or rocket tossed in a little balsamic vinegar)
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to just about as hot as it will go (I used 220˚C) and pop in three oven trays to heat up.

Spread each pizza base with tomato paste and top with parmesan and grated mozzarella. Layer on prosciutto then break buffalo mozzarella into chunks and divide on top.

Pop in the oven for about 8 – 10 minutes until golden. Serve sprinkled with sea salt and pepper and a few basil leaves.

Cook's tip: If using the pizza base recipe from the link above, you will end up having enough for four pizzas, so pop the fourth base in the freezer for emergency pizza requirements!
