make your own ‘fakeaway’ pizza. choose wholemeal tortillas or corn tortillas if avoiding wheat or gluten. this pizza takes five minutes in the oven and is perfect Friday night food.

  • 4 wholemeal tortilla wraps
  • 4 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 large mozzarella cheese balls (I like Toonsbridge buffalo mozzarella)
  • 1 large garlic clove (halved)

  • small bunch of fresh basil (roughly shredded)
  • fresh rocket (enough to scatter a handful on each pizza)
  • optional toppings:
  • diced bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, mushroom, spinach, fresh chilli, olives etc.

make and do

  • - preheat the oven to 220C (or as high as it will go!)
  • - rub the garlic clove over the tortillas
  • - divide the purée between the four tortillas (leave a small gap around the edges)
  • - season the purée with salt and pepper
  • - add toppings of choice, finish with cheese
  • - bake in the oven for 5 minutes or until sides are crispy and cheese is melted
  • - sprinkle with fresh basil and rocket leafs & serve immediately

with a twist

  • - experiment with herbs and vegetables; mix it up!
