Kids love helping you to make these little mini pitta pizzas and they taste great. The sauce is also a brilliant one to add to your everyday repertoire as it’s healthy and light and pairs brilliantly with pasta, fish or chicken.

Difficulty: Easy
Serves: 4
125g pack mozzarella, torn into pieces
6 slices Parma ham or salami or ham, torn into small pieces
8 tbsp tomato sauce, from above
4round pitta breads, wholegrain if you can
8 fresh basil leaves, torn into pieces, optional
pinch of sugar
1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
300g cherry tomatoes, chopped in half or 1 tin chopped tomato
2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
1 small onion, peeled and diced
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper



To make the tomato sauce, place a frying pan over a medium-low heat, add the oil and then the onion. Let the onion cook gently for about 2-3 minutes then add the garlic. Cook for a further 2-3 minutes – you want to cook the onion low and slow until it becomes translucent but not coloured (this will result in a sweeter flavour). Then add in the tomatoes. Mix to combine and season with the vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Allow to cook out for 10-15minutes until the tomatoes are soft and pulpy and the excess liquid has evaporated. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. If the sauce looks soupy, remove excess liquid with a large spoon. Whizz to smooth.
