  • 250g pizza base mix or ciabatta bread mix
  • olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 200g tin chopped tomatoes
  • a small handful of leaves basil
  • 1 ball mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • pepperoni or jalepeños or black olives or capers or roasted red peppers


  • STEP 1

    Make up the dough following the instructions on the pack.

  • STEP 2

    Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a small pan, then cook the garlic gently for a couple of minutes. Add the tomatoes, and simmer for 10-15 minutes until really thick. Stir in the basil and season.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Roll out the dough into a rectangle 30-35cm long, to fit a baking sheet.

  • STEP 4

    Trim a thin strip from a long side and 3 thin strips from a short side, and roll these into ropes of equal width.

  • STEP 5

    Make a grid by laying the long strip down the centre of the dough and the short strips across, so you end up with 8 squares. (You may need to stretch the dough and press it onto the base to keep it in place.)

  • STEP 6

    Spread each square with some sauce, top with the mozzarella, then arrange pepperoni and jalepeños on alternate squares, and olives, capers and peppers on the rest.

  • STEP 7

    Bake for 20-25 minutes, then cut into squares to serve.
