One of my absolute all-time favourite foods is pizza … I love it! And as it’s hard to find good pizzas these days, I prefer to make my own gourmet pizzas, using fresh, delicious and nutritious ingredients. It’s easy, fast and can be very creative.
And for me personally, less is more on a pizza. I like to use just a few fresh, tasty ingredients, like pesto, a good cheese (or even 2 or 3 types on the one pizza) + basil + sliced tomatoes + salami or smoked salmon. Yummo!
Suggested ingredients:
1 bunch of basil (leaves removed) – approx 100g
3 cloves of garlic
80g of pine nuts (toasted are nice!)
½ teaspoon of salt
¼ cup of light virgin olive oil
To make the pesto:
Place basil, garlic, pine nuts and a little salt in a food processor. Process the mix while slowly pouring in the oil, then add enough water to make the pesto smooth.
2 x large wholemeal pizza bases (or make your own!)
2 x punnets of mini Roma tomatoes (quartered)
280g jar of artichoke halves (quartered)
220g tub of fresh cherry bocconcini cheese (sliced)
Approx 20 Kalamata olives

Spread pizza bases with pesto and arrange tomatoes, cheese, olives or whatever you want over the pesto.
Bake the pizza in a hot oven at about 180-200 degrees, for about 20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
Bon appetito!
