If you are in a need for a quick meal, or looking for an idea for a tasty party snack, these pitta pizzas is what you are looking for. I got this base recipe from BBC Good Food, but you can also play around with the toppings. You can make it vegetarian, or top with other favourite pizza combinations. For example, next time I’d spice this up and add some chopped chillies or add some pickled jalapenos.

Pitta Pizzas

Serves 2 (Or 4 as a snack) | Prep 10 minutes | Cook 10 minutes |Easy


You’ll need:
  • 4 wholewheat pitta breads;
  • 4 tsp sun-dried tomato purée;
  • 3 ripe plum tomatoes, diced;
  • 1 shallot, sliced;
  • 85g chorizo, diced;
  • 50g mature cheddar, grated;
  • few basil leaves, if you like. 

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and put a baking sheet inside to heat up. Spread each pitta with 1 tsp purée. Top with the tomatoes, shallot, chorizo and cheddar.

    Place on the hot sheet and bake for 10 mins until the pittas are crisp, the cheese has melted and the chorizo has frazzled edges. Scatter with basil, if you like, and serve with a green salad.
