On 20th March 2016, This was Dinner…
The weather is really getting on my nerves at the minute. I had planned to do some gardening yesterday but it was freezing and there was often a little drizzle in the air so that was out. Today was perfect whether for gardening when I got up but the urge to garden was not there. It turned cold really quickly so I’m glad I didn’t bother.
It was supposed to be pizza for Good Friday but the other option was chicken and chips and we had a version of that on Friday night.
I made my bases using a bread mix. Yep, lazy I know. My tomato base was passata mixed with Italian herbs and spices.
Prepare the bases then place them on preheated baking trays before ‘building’.
Pizza 1 – Spicy Salami, Chorizo & Cherry Tomato
Put the oven on high and halve some cherry tomatoes. Season with salt, sprinkle with chilli flakes and drizzle with olive oil. Pop in the oven then turn the heat off completely after two minutes. You can leave this for 2 – 24 hours.
Spread the passata over the base. Add the cherry tomatoes. sprinkle with grated mozzarella, add the meats (the prepacked sliced ones), scatter with a little cheddar and sprinkle with finely chopped green chilli. Sprinkle with some mixed herbs.
Takes about 10 minutes in the oven (190°c fan), depending on the thickness of your base.
Pizza 2 – Seafood with Capers
Spread the passata over the base and sprinkle with grated mozzarella and cheddar. Add a few anchovies. Scatter over some tuna (from a tin), small prawns, and capers. Sprinkle with dried oregano.
Serve with a beer or two.
