I haven’t blogged for a while and was keen to get one out there before the year end! So this one is a recipe/recipes that I have used a lot over recent months. Partly because they are so quick, partly because they are relatively healthy, as you control the ingredients, and mainly because I have never been disappointed whatever combination of ingredients I have decided upon!
The main ingredient in this dish is the Buitoni mini pizza bases. You get 8 in a pack so good for 4 people (2 pizzas each) or a good party size if you halve them after cooking.
From there I’ve used a base topping of either creme fraiche or tinned tomatoes. The creme fraiche topping was inspired by a trip to France earlier in the year and I have to say it is my favourite.
I usually spread some herbs on the main sauce (basil, oregano, pesto, parsley, etc). Well some combination of these, not all!
Then on top of that I’ve added chicken or chorizo as my meat of choice (I always pre-cook the chicken to be on the safe side). And then some vegetables from mushrooms, onions, peppers, courgette (which I usually pre-cook if I’m doing it with chicken although it’s not really necessary).
From then I might add cherry tomatoes before the cheese (I usually choose between feta or cheddar or parmesan).
I bake them in the oven for 10 mins on 220 and enjoy a great dish afterwards. Recently we made them with our niece so they are child friendly and can be quite a good interactive cooking dish with kids. Also I made a few for our house warming so great party food also. I’ve tested them on various guests that came to visit and no disappointment yet even amongst foodies. Alternatively I have a couple with salad for my dinner. They are an easy thing to make quickly from whatever you have in the fridge so definitely my recommendation from 2014, even if they are not the most advanced dish! Sometimes the most simple are the best 🙂
